U.S. aid to Georgia lacks transparency - Russia's UN ambassador

It’s unclear what the United States intentions are in delivering aid to Georgia, according to Russia’s ambassador to the UN. Vitaly Churkin says, in contrast, Russia has shown complete transparency.

“I wish the U.S. would show the same kind of transparency when they bring their 'humanitarian assistance' in military aircraft and military vessels. But our effort is fully transparent. It has been highly praised by most of the visiting officials from international institutions, and the Russian Federation itself has been doing more than anything else to help people who were victimised by Georgian aggression in South Ossetia,” Churkin told journalist after a UN Security Council meeting in New York.
