A battle for the old guard
The Georgian political arena has again turned into a madhouse. The oppositional leaders have traditionally become active as soon as spring came. A year has passed but the authorities’ opponents never united around a single charismatic leader and did not present any definite plan of actions; still, the uniqueness of the current spring is that there is already a queue of the oppositionists who are ready to come to Moscow. Besides, the scandals broke out in several leading parties. Another interesting fact is that the politicians from the past, whom the wind of the Rose Revolution seemed to have razed from politics forever, have appeared in the political arena again.
Meetings with Putin as gesture of benevolence

The talks were held behind closed doors rousing hopes in the guest’s heart that Russian-Georgian confrontation could be overcome.
