Today, before the meeting of the NATIONAL SECURITY and DEFENSE COUNCIL held informal meeting of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili.
The parties discussed the issues of the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, a strategy to combat the invaders, and forecasts of further actions of President Vladimir Putin.
Saakashvili said: "Putin's Plan - and it's not just my opinion, but the majority of foreign experts, is to build the number of armored vehicles and artillery in the Donbass, the transfer of a few thousand Russian troops under the guise of" volunteers "and unleashing large-scale fighting in the Donbass . They will provoke shelling cities, even if Ukraine will maintain the ceasefire. Putin for peace talks - it's just a "screen", and he will play this game at least until August. legitimize very dangerous bandits through negotiations. every day such negotiations, thousands of refugees leaving Donbass, stops every business activity and economic crisis has led to increased numbers of unemployed. Putin wants impoverished region to replenish strength Russian mercenaries local disadvantaged people. Within the next 4-6 weeks, if Ukraine does not proceed to immediate action Russia provoke massacre in the Donbass, and try to create pockets of fighting in other regions of Ukraine. Putin can not defeat the Ukraine, if Ukraine is to use at least 10% of its potential, because millions of Ukrainians are able to break any plans Kremlin. Ukraine must act, and play together with Putin crumble wreckage of the Soviet empire. "
Thanks Anton Gerashchenko - he organized a half-hour meeting with me deeply respected Michael Nikolozovich. The Georgian leader said that every day reads "Tsenzor.Net", and it is for him one of the main sources of information about events in Ukraine. I'll be back with Channel 5 (I'll be there at 21.30), and a more detailed talk about communication. I'm short, but expounded his vision of political and military strategy of Ukraine. Evaluation of this strategy by Saakashvili will not speak - ask Anton, he witness).
Saakashvili is not a Georgian president anymore.
LOL. You have to observe the results on the ground to see what a reformer he was. Yes, anti-corruption reform were nice to some degree but no justice was ever involved and he used it to arbitrary punish his political opponents and their supporters. Same about economy. He had a nice government buildings and well-paid government employees but the country was still oxacart. He has ruined traditional trade ties of his nation replacing it with direct US aid. All the investment in private sector were caused by a scam, supported by international organizations, propagating Georgia as a kind of new Israel, which was an obvious lie.
Well, I would hardly cast dispersions. His leadership of the Rose Revolution was one of the most inspirational freedom movements in the modern history. Mainly, his critics are those that were STOPPED from doing business in post-Soviet 1990s-style ways!
Misha’s government has been praised for making GREAT improvements in the fight against corruption. In 2005, his administration amended several laws and increased the amount of investigations and prosecutions reducing the amount of abuse and ill-treatment in pre-trial detention facilities. Also, religious freedom also improved for followers of non-traditional faiths.
I agree there were bright sides with his presidency, he was presiding over a dead-broke hellhole and it is easy to criticise his ways, but make no mistake. Saakashvili was a dictator, a warmonger and he hasn’t thought high on political competition. The only reason he hasn’t usurped power to be a president for life is a loss of war he needn’t to start, so he lost public and international support.
