It has come to our attention that the article published May 18 entitled “Bush visit to Georgia increases tensions with Putin government” contained a factual error. The article as posted May 18 stated: “Saakashvili will also have been keen to discuss the Millennium Challenge money that Washington is paying Georgia to beef up its military.” A representative of the Millennium Challenge Georgia Fund (www.mcg.ge) informed the WSWS that any of its funds going to Georgia are earmarked for civilian, rather than military, purposes. Accordingly, the May 18 article has been amended, with the above-cited sentence eliminated.
