Georgia Quits CIS

I was going to say that I didn't even know they were insured with the Co-op, but that would have been boringly predictable.

No, Georgia has formally withdrawn from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The last country to join, in 1993, is the first one out leaving eleven FSU members remaining.

Georgian President Saakashvili announced the country’s intention to withdraw from CIS last August saying Tbilisi had decided “to say farewell to the Soviet Union.”

When was that war in South Ossetia again? Blimey, it was August 2008, fancy that.
