Pot... Kettle... Black... Georgia buying the support of tiny island nations too?

Georgia criticized Russia for "buying" the support of Nauru. It looks like they've just gone and done exactly the same thing with Tuvalu.

Georgia Provides Financial Aid to Tiny Pacific Nation

Georgia will allocate unspecified amount of financial aid to the tiny South Pacific island nation of Tuvalu, according to the government’s decision.

Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country covering just 26 square kilometers with a population of about 12,000 people.

Tuvalu was among those 50 countries, which voted in favor of Georgia-sponsored UN General Assembly resolution reiterating right of internally displaced persons and refugees to return to their homes in breakaway Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

One of Tuvalu's nearest neighbors is the world's smallest island nation of Nauru, which was the fourth UN-member state after Russia, Nicaragua and Venezuela, to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia in December, 2009.
