The country is rioting, the police uses force to suppress opposition rallies. There are reports on dead and injured. Yet, the president considers it the best time to tackle culture. Apparently, this is what Mikheil Saakashvili decided going to congratulate public figures and artists. Against With blood streams in Tbilisi, Saakashvili's behavior looks like mockery. People that receive rewards must feel vexed: no doubt, they deserve these rewards. It's a pity to receive them from bloodstained hands.
The country is in the middle of revolution while Mikheil Saakashvili is having a buffet lunch. Why worry: the police will manage the riot issue using "democratic" batons against too brave oppositionists and beating the rest of the crowd in the heat of the moment. The head of the state has more pleasant things to deal with. For instance, to award public figures, doctors, scientists, people of art and deliver a banal speech about nice things. Do a bit of a culture mix, so to say. To create an illusion of an obedient and grateful nation in contrast to those who keep yelling in squares demanding the president's resignation.
Nineteen people were given national premiums and Shota Rustaveli awards. Saakashvili pronounced a speech boasting of intelligent and wonderful people he governs.
"Georgians have a special talent and the main task is to preserve them and provide them with work. That is why our goal is to bring our talented people back from foreign countries. In particular, medical specialists. We will not be a second-rate country in terms of medicine. We must become a country of medicine, a medical center of the region", - GHN quotes Mishiko's words.
Yes, in light of current events in Sakartvelo, the words of the president are as topical as ever. They do sound cynical, however. Talented, gifted and simply sound-minded people now risk going to jails and hospitals after a "hearty conversation" with the police. Because reasonable people now rallying in squares call for resignation of Saakashvili. Ninety "protesters" have already had troubles with Georgia's democratic law that tirelessly protects freedom of speech and human rights.
"Most of them will be given a two-month administrative term, and criminal cases were initiated for a number of cases", - Shota Utiashvili, head of the information and analytical department of the Ministry of Interior of Georgia said. Nothing to say: the "talented" will not be left without forced labor for the benefit of the state. Glory to the president's fatherly care!
