New EU Special Representative to South Caucasus
The estonian diplomat Toivo Klaar has been appointed as new European Union Special Representative (EUSR) to the South Caucasus. He takes over the post of his German predecessor, Herbert Salber, who resigned after controverse statements in July.

Previously, Klaar was head of the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) to Georgia in order to monitor the conflict of the regions of South-Ossetia and Abkhazia, which are currently occupied by the Russian Federation. Before this, Klaar was positioned in the European External Action Service (EEAS) of the European Commission. Klaar studied public administration at Harvard University.

As the new EUSR to the South Caucasus, Klaar will be responsible for representing the Eruopean Union’s interests and positions in the strategically ingreasingly important region. He will also be actively responsible for promoting a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict.

Most Russian news agencies and the media in Abkhazia spread the news on April 1st. But the Russian propaganda machine did not make a joke; they meant it seriously: the devastating insect pest that has led to huge crop failures in Abkhazia since the summer of 2015 and in western Georgia since the summer of 2016, had its origins in secret American laboratories, some of which are in Georgia. In these laboratories, there were also experiments with biological weapons – including the “Asian stink bug”.
