2010-01-19 11:57

Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, said that beating journalists was inadmissible disregard of the country where action takes place.


In this way he commented upon the fact of beatings of two Georgian journalists who were covering presidential elections in Ukraine - GeorgiaTimes reporter in Tbilisi.

Saakashvili believed that none of the Georgian media workers had done anything illegal, and assessed the incident as a provocation.

"It was surely a provocation, and I don't think it was conducted by the order of some political party. I know that outside Ukraine there's one big force, interested in it, but all its attempts are doomed to fail in advance," the Georgian leader said.

He noted that no-one would be able to divide Georgian and Ukrainian peoples, and Ukraine wouldn't turn from the right way.

"Our embassy in Kyiv worked in the same direction, and from them we received information that in future our journalists would be secured against such incidents," Saakashvili said.
