Khubutia: there is no person in Georgia who can replace Saakashvili2009-04-09 16:36
The Union of Georgians in Russia believes that there is no leader who can replace the present-day president Mikheil Saakashvili and lead the country to prosperity, stated today Mikheil Khubutia, the head of the organization, at the press conference in Moscow - ITAR TASS.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Many present-day opposition leaders of Georgia stood beside Saakashvili in the times of the "Rose Revolution", therefore I cannot see a person who can head the country," he said. In his view, the present-day opposition is the "puppet opposition".
In the nearest prospective Georgia must "make friends with Russia and do commerce, restore the air connection between the countries, open a Georgian representative office in Moscow and resume issuing visas between the countries", Khubutia believes. In his view, "anti-Russian propaganda goes on in Georgia, and even Georgians living in the territory of Russia are presented as enemies". "it is nonsense, these methods are obsolete, and the situation must be settled", Khubutia said.
According to Khubutia, "the present-day Georgian authorities must resume broadcasting Russian TV channels in the territory of the country". "People in Georgia must know what is happening in Russia, as many have relatives who live and work in Russia ", he said and added "it is the 21st century, and they must not limit the people in the freedom of speech".
He also believes that "after the today's mass rally in Georgia, where the opposition demands the resignation of the present-day President Saakashvili, the authorities may start a dialog with ordinary people, limit censorship, and will tell the truth about the situation in the country ". "The present-day authorities must tell people the truth, and the people of Georgia must demand it , the head of the Union said.
