Last night Rustavi 2 [Georgian TV channel] aired the exclusive interview Vladimir Putin, the PM of Russia, gave them.


In his speech he imposed responsibility for the events of August 2008 on Georgian government and Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia - RBC.

"Abkhazia and South Ossetia recognized themselves long ago, that is why I don`t want to annoy and humiliate Georgia. Therefore, I want to say that the irresponsible activities of Georgian government led us to these tragic developments. I think if Georgia had not abolished autonomies to these two regions earlier and did not suppress these regions, nothing would have happened", he told - Rustavi 2.

"Russia had been supporting the territorial integrity of Georgia despite the fact that these republics declared independence long before, but Saakashvili`s policy has changed the situation radically. We did not have other choice - and we made the decision about which you all know very well", Putin stated.

The PM highlighted that the cause of the conflict was Saakashvili regime, and Russia respects the Georgian people a lot.
