Who does Georgian president work for?2010-05-12 17:33
Georgia lost its independence long ago. It is not USA's Georgia-2 but almost a Russian subject. This opinion is still more frequently heard in Sakartvelo. Recently ex minister Goga Khaindrava called the Rose Revolution and the change of power in Ajaria in 2006 the fruits of Russian intrigues. Nodar Javakhishvili, ex president of National Bank reported that dainty lumps of Georgian economy go to Russia in repayment of debts. Nino Burdzhanadze remarked: Georgian authorities conceded to Russia more things for free than new Ukrainian president did earning 40 billion dollars.
It's common truth that the Rose Revolution was masterminded in the States sponsoring Georgia's NGOs. The government led by Mikheil Saakashvili, PM Zurab Zhvania and Speaker Nino Burdzhanadze was also supported by Soros Foundation. Nobody had doubts about the president's pro-Western orientation. All the more so that upon graduation from Kiev State University the leader of the revolutionary triumvirate studied in Strasbourg, New York, Florence Academy of Law and Hague Academy of International Law.
But after 6 years of Saakashvili's presidency the idea that he is an ordinary GRU-guy and has nothing to do with the CIA at all is heard till more often. This is what people who were governing the country together with him just a short while ago keep saying.
"The Rose Revolution as well as events in Ajaria are a Russia-planned coup that helped Kremlin to plant its agents of influence to rule Georgia, - Goga Khaindrava, an ex state minister, now an opposition figure told Asaval Dasavali newspaper.
According to him not only Mikheil Saakashvili, but his uncle too are agents working "in tandem". Georgia is full of rumors that Temur Alasania, now a businessman that used to work in Soviet security structures is trying to restore old ties in Moscow and release Mishiko, his nephew from the status of persona non grata.
There are two more "agents of influence" - Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili and Intelligence Chief Gela Bezhuashvili who should have been put in prison after the war in 2008, as Khaindrava thinks.
All Georgian economy is controlled by Russia, the oppositionist notes stating that now late PM Zurab Zhvania "whose murder is still enveloped in mystery" "objected to Saakasahvili's and Bendukidze's plan to transfer all strategic facilities to Russia".
"What happened in Georgia was not a democratic revolution at all. Russian special services simply substituted Georgian authorities for plain vassals of Russian interests", - Goga Khaindrava summed up, IA Regnum quotes.
