Will Saakashvili keep his promise?2010-02-05 08:46
Contrary to forecasts and fears Georgia has no intention to send monitors to the second round of presidential election in Ukraine. According to Mikheil Saakashvili Tbilisi won't do it since Georgia is not going to intervene in Ukraine's domestic affairs. However, there is a long list of historical facts when the Georgian leader easily went back on his word. Will it be history repeating and can Saakashvili be trusted in this situation?
As GeorgiaTimes has written earlier, the information that Georgian monitors might come to the second round of presidential election in Ukraine were quite a stir in Odessa. Local city council gathered for an extraordinary session with the deputies expressing their concern over possible unrest and frustration of the second round of elections and calling on the country leaders and PACE to "provide adequate evaluation of actions by Timoshenko and her patrons".
The point is that a short while ago Yulia Vladimirovna acknowledged authenticity of her recently promulgated telephone talk with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili about "combat-effective people" ready to assist Timoshenko if necessary. However, the PM herself wriggled out of the situation saying that the Georgian leader had meant valid monitors to watch over elections, not ninja militants. "When I say that we for instance have a combat-effective team I mean this team can work efficiently and I don't imply they can carry out riots", - she remarked. Nonetheless, the candidate to the post of the country leader confessed that inviting Georgian monitors was her idea.
Under the circumstances the news that Georgian citizens were massively booking rooms in Donetsk hotels in preparation for the second series of elections greatly disturbed the place. Local city administrator Alexander Lukianchenko even had to call on Grigol Katamadze, Georgian ambassador to Ukraine, to prevent arrival of his compatriots to Donetsk in order to avoid the conflict at the time of voting.
The reason for that were recent adventures of Georgians in Ukraine. At the first round of elections some of the so-called "monitors" worked with fake certificates of media specialists, threatened the chairman of a polling station and two Georgian citizens were caught entering a polling station and trying to tear the seals off the ballot-boxes. Moreover, representatives of the law-enforcement bodies found an electric shock device in a sock of one Georgian guest.
