According to expectations, Georgia’s attempt to get the better of billionaire Donald Trump has failed. It turns out that it is Sakartvelo that must shoulder the Trump Tower ambitious project implying the construction of high buildings in Batumi.

Abkhazia and South Ossetia don’t want to buy independence
Non-recognition of Abkhazia’s and South Ossetia’s sovereignty has been the cornerstone of Georgia’s foreign policy in the past few years.

Europe shelved Mishiko
Georgia wants the European Union to act as a mediator between itself and Russia. But before the mechanisms of Moscow-Tbilisi interaction are defined, Europeans decided to encourage a productive dialogue between Sakartvelo’s authorities and the opposition. The sticking point is the electoral legislation, for Mikhail Saakashvili and his government are not interested in changing anything. On the other hand, EU is rapidly reconsidering its attitude towards the split-off republics, Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Considering the situation, the Georgian leader will have to sacrifice something in prejudice of his interests.
