Saakashvili's ostentatious eviction2012-11-12 18:21
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili may soon lose one of his main treasures - residence in Avlabari. The new government believes that the maintenance of the palace, as well as the presidential administration as a whole, costs the country a pretty penny. President was offered to move to the State Office Building, and the saved money will be spent on the needs of ordinary citizens. Most Georgians support Ivanishvili in his decision to "evict" Saakashvili. But not all like the pomp of this decision.
Since 2009 president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili held meetings at his residence in Avlabari. The building is impressive, majestic, designed to express the power and wealth of the state. The construction of this pearl of architecture took several dozen millions of dollars. Only the dome crowning the building costs a pretty penny. It is made of 12 rectangular bulletproof glass fragments, the price of each of which is $ 56 thousand. Saakashvili himself, however, calls a modest sum - 13 million lari (about $ 8 million).
The palace was designed by several architects. The author of the project was George Batiashvili, but was finished by the Italian Michele De Lucchi. The majestic building is designed in classic style and is crowned by a large dome, decorated with elements of Greco-Roman and Italian Renaissance. Construction of luxury presidential palace began after the "Rose Revolution" in 2004, and continued for five years. It is still a mystery where these millions are from. Various organizations are involved in the investigation and search for the exact sources of funding, but even the new government has no reliable information about this.
Old, worn houses of ordinary people located around the residence looked like pitiful vestiges. Against the background of these squalid houses the presidential palace looked more majestic and ... insolent. In the end these old houses were demolished, and their pesky owners were evicted. Some fictitious person has purchased these houses for the price less than the real market price and sold them to the state. Things got nice and sedate; there has remained nothing reminiscent of poverty and destitution.
Mikheil Saakashvili has been holding meeting at his residence for three years. Luxury, comfort and a great view from the window - this is all the real ruler needs. Each ruler has indispensable attributes of power, strength and wealth. He is not a mere mortal.
