Georgian opposition again refuted information about financing from Russia2009-06-24 16:10
Georgian opposition receives no financing from Russia, stated Mamuka Katsitadze [The Alliance for Georgia, The New Rights party] - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
This morning several Georgian TV channels, which opposition calls "puppet TV" of the authorities, spread video tape witnessing opposition leaders [Gachechiladze and Gamkrelidze] conducting negotiations with ex-Interior Minister Kakha Targamadze.
The video appeared on Youtube. The footage claims Targamadze is allegedly connected with Russian special services. Besides, the mass media stressed the previous statement of Levan Gachechiladze, that he went to Europe for money [Gachechiladze was seen in the video, and the recorded meeting took place in Berlin].
"It's a cheap campaign, and it wasn't started today. Since April 9th the Georgian opposition troubles the authorities and makes a real backdrop for the shift of power. That is why labels of some "dirty" money, cooperation with Russia, etc are created," Katsitadze said.
Both opposition leaders and Targamadze, who, according to Gamkrelidze, was the initiator of the meeting, admitted the fact of the negotiation.
"I held meeting with Targamadze, a well as with Saakashvili in my time", Gachechiladze said and added that Targamadze told him about the ways "Saakashvili himself was financed".
He highlighted that the issues of financing opposition he discussed with other people, but refused to call their names.
Gachechiladze claimed that Vano Merabishvili [the current Interior Minister] doesn't have the footage of his talks with "businesspeople who want to help me". He mentioned some of them are Georgians, some are not, but no Russians among them. Gachechildze added he will receive money "very transparently".
