Ugulava grew into presidential chair2011-06-14 14:44
During his recent online conference in Facebook the mayor of Tbilisi Georgy Ugulava conveyed a message that it was not for nothing that he was considered as a possible successor of Mikhail Saakashvili at the post of the head of state. At any rate, his words on the crackdown of the peaceful opposition event in Prospekt Rustaveli during the night between 25 and 26 May by the Georgian special forces follow the same authoritarian style so fancied by the Georgian authorities.
During the people's communication with the city administrator a lot of topics were touched upon. The inhabitants were worried about the problems of Tbilisi water supply, employment and the destiny of a luxurious car that Ugulava has just set for an auction. Naturally, a lot of attention was paid to the sanguinary events that took place during the suppression of the митинга ″Popular Assembly″ meeting that happened at the end of May. In the opinion of the Tbilisi mayor, it was a classical attempt of a coup d'état. ″The event organizers had just one purpose: either overturn the power or at least make a fuss, he stressed. - The process does not cost a single human life. It was just juggling with
the lives of people and nothing else″. He did not avoid the banal accusations of the oppositionists of drunkenness and drug use, so widely used by the authorities right after the forced suppression of the ″Popular Assembly″ event.
In general, while commenting the May tragedy, the mayor of the Georgian capital approved himself as a true ″chick of Saakashvili's nest″. In his opinion, just those who gathered in Prospekt Rustaveli were to blame for what happened as they did nothing less than use tear gas and rubber bullets. Ugulava explains such cruelty by the ″emotional shock″ that the valiant officers' conscience could not stand due to the rumours about the death of their colleagues under the wheels of the opposition cars. It looks like the psychological психологическая drill of the local special forces is their weak point. As opposed to the skills of beating their armless compatriots. At the same time the mayor of the Georgian capital is sure that the actions of the special forces are not only justified but should not set wondering as they ″happen all over the world″. Though he did not specify since when democratic states to which the Georgian authorities refer their republic have considered conventional and admissible the use of such cruel methods to suppress the actions of their political opponents.
