Labourites judging the rest by themselves2011-07-04 19:57
Another scandal is ready to burst out among Mikhail Saakashvili's opponents. Representatives of the opposition hardly had time to recover from the split of the Group of Eight and the failure of the related negotiations on reforming the electoral environment when there started looming the possibility of another scandal. The republic's Labor Party accused representatives of the Georgian expatriate communities in Russia of encouraging Saakashvili's ruling regime and attempts to discriminate anyone fighting the authorities domestically.
According to the Labourites' special statement, some of the Georgian natives presently living in Russia receive numerous benefits from Moscow. In the oppositionists' opinion, the Kremlin's good will is related to the promise given by leaders of the expatriate organizations to provide support to the powers resisting Saakashvili's regime in the republic. However, as the party's political secretary Georgy Gugava has stated, the situation is different. According to the Labour Party, the Russian government's favour is useless, for the people it has been taking care of have gone into cahoots with the leader of the Rose Revolution. As he asserts, well-known businessmen Alexander Ebralidze, Mikhail Khubutia and Badri Meladze "are Saakashvili's strategic allies in discrediting and eliminating the opposition".
"We have to send a letter to the Russian government about their true activities. In fact, they sponsor no opposition. We call on these people to stop trading their motherland and setting up provocations", - Gugava underlined.
The statement of the Labour Party sounds rather interesting in the context of the real attitude of most representatives of the Georgian expatriate community in Russia towards Mikhail Saakashvili. No use talking about it since Alexander Ebralidze heading the World Congress of the Georgian People (WCGP) has many times stated his readiness to remove the current president of the republic. Ebralidze received many blows from the media controlled by the Georgian government in the form of accusations of initiating forced seizure of power and arranging various subversions in the territory of the state.
As was noticed in an interview to GeorgiaTimes correspondent by Alexander Ebralidze's supporter in WCGP Vladimir Khomeriki, such accusations on the part of the Georgian opposition are totally groundless. "The words about our cooperation with Mikhail Saakashvili and the current Georgian regime" are total nonsense and profanation serving its interests.
