Mishiko drinking wine bottled in Soviet Union2011-05-19 11:19
Mikhail Saakashvili addressed a grateful speech to the Russian Federation; it was traditionally full of bile and sarcasm. It turns out that the embargo imposed by Moscow on Georgian wines and mineral waters served the good turn to the Caucasian republic. The quality of products has grown enormously, while new sales markets have been already found. The entire world will soon drink Kvanchkara, Kindzmarauli and Borjomi, having seen the true value of their flavor properties. And it all happened due to the Russian government that deprived is citizens of the precious drink. Well, as the saying goes, you're always welcome, Mikhail Nikolozovitch.
that deprived is citizens of the precious drink. Well, as the saying goes, you're always welcome, Mikhail Nikolozovitch.
A grateful petition to Russia is obviously becoming Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili's annual tradition. He apparently knows how to treat the cold Moscow, which has frozen relations with Georgia until better times - until the autocratic regime is changed, and is trying to get any reaction from the Kremlin by way of petty provocation. Still, year after year things end up in Mishiko's monologues.
"We thank the great Russia for the embargo. It has taught us to produce better wine", - Mikhail Saakashvili addressed Russian authorities in 2009. He then underlined that the Georgian business must learn to sale its products at favourable prices, seek serious investments and raise the marketing up to the international level.
But Mikhail Nikolozovitch did not confine himself to slogans and declarative statements. He made a second attempt to drink Russians drunk with the Georgian wine last year in Tbilisi at the opening of the 33rd World Congress of Vine and Grapes. The "father of nations" revealed a top secret to the world then: in the far 2006, the Georgian president personally went to St. Petersburg with a visit to Putin and saw smuggled wine served in the bar of his residence!
"Putin was late for four hours. There were journalists there. With a wink, a barman in Putin's residence offered us smuggled Georgian wine as some great privilege. It was sold on the ground floor of the residence, though two months ago, Putin had sworn that not a single bottle of the Georgian wine would ever get to the Russian market", - Saakashvili unmasked Russian lovers of wine.
