The Georgian political arena has again turned into a madhouse. The oppositional leaders have traditionally become active as soon as spring came. A year has passed but the authorities' opponents never united around a single charismatic leader and did not present any definite plan of actions; still, the uniqueness of the current spring is that there is already a queue of the oppositionists who are ready to come to Moscow. Besides, the scandals broke out in several leading parties. Another interesting fact is that the politicians from the past, whom the wind of the Rose Revolution seemed to have razed from politics forever, have appeared in the political arena again.
There was hardly anyone who kept from commenting upon the visit of the former Georgian Prime Minister and current leader of the Democratic Movement - United Georgia Nino Burjanadze to Moscow. That seems to be a unique event considering the status of the Georgian-Russian relationship. It is clear that the authorities are lavishly criticizing the "rebel". Time will show whether Nino Anzorovna will succeed in breaking the ice of the Georgian-Russian relationship. According to the authorities, Burjanadze's visit will entail "an unprecedented consolidation of the patriotic powers", which will become "the people's answer to the challenge of the Kremlin and its puppets in Georgia". However, today the Laborites have stated that the key to saving Georgia is to be found in Moscow. According to the Georgian media, leader of the conservative party Zviad Dzidziguri is also planning to come to Moscow, although he has not specified the exact date.
