Tbilisi thinks Luzhkov embroiled Putin with Medvedev
In the view of parliamentary majourity of Georgia, the dismissal of Yury Luzhkov is nothing else but a cause of the quarrel between Putin and Medvedev - Novosti-Gruzia.
"Luzhkov's dismissal is a conflict between Medvedev and Putin, as Luzhkov was a political basis and business partner of Putin", opposition Vice-Speaker Levan Vepkhvadze believes. - "Political scientists repeatedly said there were some problems Putin and Medvedev, now I cannot say exactly what is happening there, but Medvedev obviously wants to introduce himself as a person with authority and the person who makes decisions".
"I don't want to speculate on this topic, but it again demonstrates Russia must necessarily change its course, both domestic and foreign. In regard to Georgia it must withdraw troops from occupied territories, implement obligations to the world community, otherwise it will also strike the Russian Federation and do harm to Russians," said Akaki Minashvili, a representative of the ruling majourity, the chairman of the parliamentary Committee for Foreign Relations.
