SUBJECT: ASSISTANCE TO GEORGIA: DEMARCHE DELIVERED

REF: STATE 100093

1. (U) EmbOffs delivered reftel demarche regarding the
upcoming Georgia donors conference in Brussels to Tomasz
Orlowski, Georgia desk officer at the Polish MFA, as well as
Barbara Gronowska and Joanna Poplawska in the MFA's
Development Cooperation Department on September 22. The MFA
is working with the Finance Ministry to determine how much
room there is in Poland's budget to make a donation, but no
decisions have yet been made.

2. (U) Orlowski also stated that the overall amount of
assistance granted to date by the Polish government stands at
PLN 190,000 (about USD 83,000). Orlowski informed us that
the MFA intends to spend a "significant sum of money" to
support activities of the International Organization for
Migration as a response to its "Georgia Crisis-Flash Appeal,"
which was published within the framework of the UN Common
Appeals Process (CAP). Final decision has not been made on
whether and how much support will be provided. In addition,
the Polish government is considering financial support to
winterize housing for 100 refugees from the conflict zone in
Georgia.
