2009-12-23 17:44

Vladmir Putin, the PM of Russia, is worried about the possible pressure of Georgian government on sculptor Merab Berdzenishvili, the creator of the blasted Glory Memorial[monument to people, who fought against fascism in Great Patriotic War] in Kutaisi.


"I'm sure he'll be exerted pressure on. It will be another mistake of the present-day government [of Georgia]", Putin said at the meeting with Russian Speaker Gryzlov, pro-opposition Movement for Just Georgia Zurab Noghaideli, and Mayor of Moscow Luzhkov - RIA Novosti.

On December 19th the Memorial was blasted by Sakpetkmrtsevi [Gruzvryvprom] commercial company, on the request of Kutaisi Mayor's Office. The debris fell in the yard of one house, killed a child and her mother, wounded several people.

The new building of the Parliament will be built at that place in Kutaisi.

Russian Foreign Ministry called the blast of the monument a blasphemy and act of state vandalism. Putin proposed to reconstruct the monument in Moscow, Luzhkov said the replica of the Memorial will be placed on Poklonnaya Hill, perhaps, with participation of the monument's author.
