Saakashvili scares France with Russia2008-11-14 11:49
On Thursday Mikhail Saakashvili, the President of Georgia tried to improve his political rating in France by scaring French people with his statements of Russian aggression, cutting off energy supplies and building a wall in Abkhazia. "You should realize it clearly that since the moment Russia decided to cross this line and has started conquering other countries, it will not stop, it will continue", - that was the President's postulate for his debut on the France Inter radio on Thursday night.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The listeners didn't get Saakashvili's clear answers to the questions "who attacked first?" and "how many people died in South Ossetia during Georgian aggression?" The President claimed that the conflict broke out "after many days of bombing (Georgian settlements), after deaths of policemen and civilians", after invitations of foreign ambassadors to the bombing scene, and after interception of Russian servicemen tapes with talks of Russian tanks crossing the border.
Saakashvili expressed great regret for deaths of people of Tskhinval, Georgian citizens, though five minutes before he stated before the conflict Russians had evacuated the whole city and turned into a "ghost". The President also gave no clear answer to irony of the presenters, who, in response to his statements of Russian threat asked: "Do you really think that Russia intends to conquer Europe? »
"The second issue is energy supplies for Europe. After Georgia, should Azerbaijan, under Russian great pressure, agree to quarter 16 thousand servicemen, it will be high time to say goodbye to alternative oil supplies; it's worth mentioning that since that moment Russia will control 60% more energy, oil and gas than today ", - Saakashvili said.
Practically the same words heard the viewers of an infotainment show of Canal Plus at night after the meeting of Georgian leader and French President, Nicolas Sarcosy. 90 minutes later Saakashvili presented the same accusations in live air of the satellite TV channel, France 24, broadcast in the Internet as well. He compared actions of Russian rule with the policy of Hitler and Stalin in Czechoslovakia, Poland and Finland, and warned Europeans of possible consequences of their "connivance": division of RF-EU issue and Georgian problem. But the constant argument against Russia was the charge of building "a 120-kilometer wall like the one in Berlin", RIA-Novosti informs.
