Lukashenko and Saakashvili to “exchange murders”?

2010-11-29 18:17

10680.jpegThe story about Mikheil Nikolozovitch and Alexander Grigoryevitch making friends is gradually growing in details. The aliens who suddenly found each other sharing their dislike of Russia are obviously ready to secure their connection. They are incited not only by the presence of a mutual enemy but by their domestic competitors' growing positions. Public speaking of both the Georgian and Byelorussian opposition makes the presidents nervous.


Representatives of United Civil Party (UCP) of Byelorussia have announced an agreement between the two countries stipulating that Georgian experts may provide assistance to Alexander Lukashenko in fighting his own opposition. This information is confirmed even by the sources in the Byelorussian president's administration. Tbilisi's support won't cost Minsk much. The main point is to continue getting on Russia's nerves by the primitive game of "will recognize - won't recognize" in respect of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

In his turn, leader of Byelorussian UCP Anatoly Lebedko has underlined that the realization of this initiative will prove again that Mikheil Saakashvili has long since given up the democratic ideas of the Rose Revolution that helped him to come to power. "There is very little distance between the great and the disgusting, the funny and the sad. Today, everyone is making choice at least in favor of the European continent, a choice between the values and pragmatism. Saakashvili came to power with the help of a values-based program. Having taken the helm of the state, he has completely replaced the program and is guided by sheer pragmatism but getting as far as advising on how to avoid mass protests is beyond my comprehension. Thus, I believe it to be devaluation of Saakashvili himself and the slogans that he came to power with", - Lebedko underlined.

Alexander Lukashenko may really need his friend Mikheil's assistance in his struggle with the opposition. Presidential elections in Byelorussia scheduled for December 19 will evidently lead to mass protest actions, while Mikheil Saakashvili has probably made up his mind to use Byelorussian elections as another round of an absolutely hopeless confrontation with Russia. Batka Lukashenko's (Batka = Old Man) victory at the upcoming voting will surely be used by Saakashvili's regime as a trophy in his fight with the Kremlin and the proof of the Georgian diplomacy's power: look, we supported Lukashenko and there he is with his victory despite being disfavoured by Moscow! Welcome to Mishiko and Partners PR agency!

So far, there are only rumours about the consultation services that the Georgian party is ready to render to the leader of Byelorussia. However, it is quite possible that Mikheil Saakashvili won't hesitate to support his friend from Minsk with "live force", especially that he is quite experienced in that. Once, Georgian governor tried to assist another buddy of his, former President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, in his fight with political opponents. A scandal with sending a couple of thousands of "observers" from Georgia to the presidential elections in Ukraine negatively affected the image of the then relationship between Kiev and Tbilisi, which was not quite unattractive by that time. Still, the "fellow sponsors" were never embarrassed at the fact.
