Saakashvili Will Watch the Parade on TV2010-04-22 18:05
On the Victory Day Moscow will be glad to receive anyone but Mikhail Saakashvili. The Russian side considers the presence of the Georgian President in the Russian capital simply inappropriate. Will the Georgian leader react to this gesture of Russia?
According to the Assistant to the Russian President Sergey Prikhodko, it would be strange to invite Saakashvili at least because he destroys monuments to heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
The representative of the Kremlin specified that the Russian President sent written invitations to Moscow to his nearest neighbours, leaders of CIS countries. In addition, an informal CIS summit dedicated to the lessons of the Second World War and to the care about veterans is planned for 8 May. Sergey Prikhodko expressed his hope that most CIS presidents will come, though they will also celebrate the Victory Day in their countries».
Despite the absence of the Georgian authorities in Moscow, Georgian veterans who rose in arms for their motherland 65 years ago will come to the parade. Andrey Nesterenko, official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, already said that four veterans of the Great Patriotic War and four more Georgian citizens will take place in the solemn events of 9 May representing Georgia as a former Soviet republic. At the same time the question of the participation of Georgian community representatives in the Victory jubilee is being studied now.
As for Mikhail Saakashvili, the Russian side has already stated the impossibility of any contact with him after the August attack at South Ossetia. Moscow got added evidence of the correctness of this decision at the end of last year, when to the Georgian President's order the Memorial of Glory was exploded in Kutaisi. The Georgian regime representatives were in such a hurry to destroy the symbol of historical co-operation with Russia that a 8-year girl and her mother were killed as a result of the explosion.
The Georgian and Russian communities opposed historical vandalism after that event. The Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin stressed that the monument destruction was another attempt to cancel the record of a common past from the memory of the ex-USSR peoples, including a heroic past.
And in February the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev declared that Moscow and Tbilisi will sooner or later return to normal. full-fledged relations, but he personally would have nothing to do with the current Georgian President.
