Text on Saakashvili with Putin implied2010-10-29 18:50
Georgia's most biased news site features a new article on difficulties in relations between Vladimir Putin and Mikheil Saakashvili undersigned by a woman. But even without it the article seems purely feminine. The text creaks with involuntary admiration for the Russian PM. Longing for strength and steadiness is highly palpable. Still, the home leader must be supported too. Like Mikheil Nokolozovich - you are cool too!
It is hard to overestimate the "love" Georgian leadership has for Vladimir Putin. Over the whole post-Soviet space or, to be fair, in the whole world, there will hardly be two politicians who dislike each other more than Russian PM and Georgian president do. Their "liking" is beyond all recognized rules of decorum.
The world diplomacy is like Japanese politeness - a citizen of the country of the Rising Sun will smile at you even if he's going to kill you. Still, both the Kremlin and the White House believe that Saakashvili is not worth of such techniques.
That is why Vladimir Putin dares a public statement about exactly what he will hang Mikheil Saakashvili by when given a chance. And Dmitry Medvedev refuses to go to Munich upon learning that Russia's number one persona non grata will be among the guests.
As it turns out, Saakashvili's attitude to Putin is somewhat more complicated. It has been repeatedly remarked that the Georgian leader is trying to imitate Vladimir Vladimirovich. Suffice it to remember his PM ambition or his bare chest before TV cameras, or jet piloting. Still, he does not make it at all. .......
Отношение же самого Саакашвили к Путину несколько сложнее. Неоднократно замечалось, что грузинский лидер старается подражать Владимиру Владимировичу. То в премьеры после президентства нацелится, то продемонстрирует телекамерам обнаженную грудь, то попробует себя за штурвалом самолета. Но не хватает силенок, не хватает. An unfeathered crow won't become a white swan.
That is why he suffers an inferiority complex: "I'm as good as him!" If Putin's attitude to Saakashvili is synonymous to the phrase "spit and forget", Mishiko's sickly craving for the Russian PM is a much more delicate thing. The Georgian president is a nervous man plucking at at his tie when something happens, so it's no use arguing with him. It is so hard to wake up every morning and realize that nothing depends on you. While a lot depends on Putin...
