Is Alasania coming to Moscow?2010-02-26 23:06
The Georgian opposition that has been regularly criticizing the current authorities has more than once stated the necessity of settling relationship with Russia. For some unknown reasons, things did not get farther than appeals. It was leader of the oppositional Movement for Fair Georgia Zurab Nogaideli that became the first and the only robin; since the end of last year, he has been regularly visiting Moscow and holding negotiations at the highest level. Will others follow him? So far, the point at issue is whether Irakli Alasania, one of the most high-ranked oppositionists, will arrive at the Russian capital.
Recently, leader of the Our Georgia - Free Democrats party Irakli Alasania received an invitation to come to Moscow from the Georgian expatriate community.
It was President of the Union of Georgians in Russia Mikhail Khubutia who invited him to meet with his fellow countrymen at the Open Talk discussion club. It is interesting that the invitation was voiced via the most popular Georgian TV channel, Rustavi 2.
"We are interested in meeting Irakli Alasania. We want to ask him some questions and get clear answers. Neither the opposition, nor other public representatives with political ambitions have got any definite program. To out mind, it is inadmissible to ignore Russia while working upon such program", - Head of the Union of Georgians in Russia Mikhail Khubutia stated on the air of Rustavi 2.
As our correspondent was told at the press center of the Union of Georgians in Russia, this organization conducts regular sociological polls among the representatives of the Georgian expatriate community on the following topic: which representative of the Georgian public would you like to talk to?
According to the research, the Georgians living in Russia are interested in the opinion of leader of the Our Georgia - Free Democrats party Irakliy Alasania. In their opinion, he is one of the brightest leaders of the Georgian opposition.
However, judging by the results of the poll, the Georgian expatriate community members would like to meet not only with the Georgian politicians but with the workers of culture and artists as well, for instance, with such well-known people as Gia Kancheli, Revaz Gabriadze, Zurab Kipshidze, Temur Babluani.
It should be noted that the Open Talk discussion club has already been visited by another oppositional politician, leader of the political Movement of Fair Georgia, former Prime Minister of the country Zurab Nogaideli. Later on, Head of the oldest Georgian Drama Theatre named after Shota Rustaveli, a well-known stage director Robert Sturua also took part in the discussions.
