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 ( 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.
