Northern wind of changes
Georgia is a country of paradoxes: old likings can suddenly turn into open disfavor, moods and political preferences are equally changeable like springtime weather. Endless phases of political crisis over 20 years after the perestroika, regular change of country leaders and Georgian-Russian relations just prove that.
