Ukraine in wait for guests from Tbilisi2010-02-01 16:45
Information that Georgian monitors might come to the second round of Ukraine's presidential election made Odessa worry. Local regional council gathered for an emergency session with the deputies expressing concern over possible unrest and frustration of the second round of election calling on the country leaders and PACE to "provide adequate evaluation of the anti-popular actions by Timoshenko and her patrons". A logical question is whether Tbilisi will risk sending its people to Ukraine in this situation?
As GeorgiaTimes has already written, an impressive delegation of the so-called "monitors" from Georgia was quite an event at the time of the first round of presidential election in Ukraine. Despite local CEC's denial to register over 2,000 Tbilisi representatives, guests from sunny Georgia nevertheless came there acting more like troublemakers.
Contrary to the promises by Levan Tarkhnishvili, ex chairman of Georgian CEC that only a few representatives of the republic would stay for the second round, last week Donetsk mayor Alexander Lukyanchenko reported that Georgian citizens were massively booking rooms in hotels of the city in preparation for the second round. The city administrator called on Grigol Katamadze, Georgian Ambassador to Ukraine to prevent arrival of his compatriots to Donetsk and avoid any conflicts at the time of voting.
Pre-election fervor was heated up by PM Yulia Timoshenko's confession that the promulgated record of her telephone talk with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was authentic. As we reported earlier, the first to hear the record was Mikhail Brodsky, also a candidate for the post of Ukrainian president. According to him the idea was to frustrate the election attracting over 3,000 Georgian militants ready to assist Timoshenko in case of her failure to win. Yulia Vladimirovna claims that Saakashvili was referring to valid election monitors, not ninja militants. "When I say that we, for instance, have a battle-worthy team I mean it can work efficiently, I don't hint at riots", - she remarked adding that it was her idea to invite Georgian monitors. Their efficient "work" has been repeatedly discussed by the way.
