"It is an isolated incident and it didn't spread to other military bases, the situation is under control. Order and stability are kept in the country", Saakashvili claimed.
He mentioned that the incident in Mukhrovani occurred on the threshold of the "two important events: NATO exercise and the EU summit in Prague, where the Eastern Partnership program must be signed". "Before these events Russia trebled its military presence in Georgia, what was made with mass riots in mind, and was directed against democracy and against Georgia's integration in European and Atlantic structures", the President believes.
In his view, Georgian leadership behaved reservedly. "We did what many European countries would do. We prevented provocations, and I thank all the responsible political forces of Georgia for it and reiterate readiness to cooperate with them", Saakashvili said.
"Former guardsmen, who tried to organize riots in Georgia, pointed against the country's security, against democratic system and against our future, participate in this". "it's a challenge to the constitutional order and stability in Georgia", the President said.
