"The USA have changed their attitude towards Saakashvili; it would be sufficient to remember that recently, during the UN General Assembly session, the US President Barack Obama refused to meet with him", - VZGLYAD is citing her.
"Saakashvili is no longer seriously taken not only in Russia but in any other country", - leader of Movement said. "Saakashvili's regime is maintained only due to the anti-Russian rhetoric", - Burjanadze believes.
As reported earlier by GeorgiaTimes, co-founder of the Defend Georgia movement, former candidate for presidency Levan Gachechiladze stated today that the resignation of the current President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili and his withdrawal from the country's political space is the primary purpose of the Georgian opposition.
The oppositionist referred to the current head of the Georgian state as to a "monster", which is "to be removed in a bloodless way".
By now, Europe, Russia and the USA have realized that they are dealing "with inadequate power in Georgia"; thus, according to Gachechiladze, Saakashvili is "half isolated".
Six years ago, Georgia experienced the change of power. The opposition did not agree with the results of parliamentary election and came out into the streets. The movement was headed by Mikhail Saakashvili, Nino Burjanadze and Zurab Zhvania.
The dissidents rushed into the parliament building during the speech delivered by the then President of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze who finally had to submit resignation. Eventually, Saakashvili became the president of Georgia, Burjanadze remained the speaker of parliament and Zhvania was appointed the prime minister.
Georgia set a course for joining NATO and integration into European Union. The United States became the country's strategic partner; they are still providing financial and political assistance to the republic.
