Europe turns back on Tbilisi2011-05-23 11:38
Official Tbilisi seizes any opportunity to prove it loyalty to Western democracy principles and the fact that Georgia's main obstacle on the way to triumph of democratic ideals is intriguing Moscow. For a long time the West didn't mind Saakashvili's anti-Russian rhetoric. Everything changed drastically after the military adventure in August 2008. Now the EU and the States start realizing that Georgia's pursuit of democracy is hampered by the cabal of Georgia's untalented leader.
President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek who came to Georgia on a visit had to acknowledge grievously that the country's government does not apply enough effort to develop democracy institutions and civil society in the country. Despite support for democratic reforms that the European Union offers as part of the Eastern Partnership program, the country Saakashvili is in charge with is far from aspirations the regime manifests.
"Not much has been done under the Eastern Partnership program as the European Union had in mind", - the head of the European Parliament said at a joint press conference with David Bakradze, chairman of Georgian parliament. Jerzy Buzek spoke about reluctance of Georgian leadership to meet Europe's requests.
"Eastern Partnership is very important for the European Parliament. Establishing this kind of relationships we had a great hope that we would reach serious progress on a number of issues. Yet, this forecast has not panned out. Our achievements are much more modest than we expected particularly over supremacy of law, freedom of media, independent court, improvement of electoral environment and cooperation between authorities and opposition. Openness and a dialogue is what the government and opposition must have", - Jerzy Buzek said. As for the Polish politician, traditionally permissive toward Saakashvili's regime, this barefaced criticism is equal to political obstruction.
Yet, even these harsh words of the European Parliament's diplomatic leader do not reflect all the depth of resentment that the Georgian demagogue provokes. He is a tie-eater, a political adventurist who, goaded by Western flatterers, thought he would conquer the Russian bear and launched a war he would never have won. He is a politician that takes any opportunity to spite Moscow - all these are descriptions of Mikheil Saakashvili in Czech mass media that have never showed benevolence toward Russia.
