Nogaideli: relationship with Russia should be restored despite August 20082010-12-27 12:23
According to Zurab Nogaideli, the already former leader of the oppositional movement For Fair Georgia, the major part of the Georgian community supports the restoration of relationship with Russia despite the events of August 2008, Voice of America reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"According to an opinion poll held by the U.S. International Institute, only 10 percent of people in Georgia supported the idea of resuming relationship with Russia last September, while this November, this number has reached 84 percent", - Nogaideli said, substantiating his trips to Moscow.
"Let us not forget that it was Saakashvili himself who create these problems. I'm sure that it is the current head of the state who is responsible before the Georgian people for his policy and for having lost the Georgian territories. He is to be blamed for the part of the Georgian territory being occupied today and for the Russian troops' presence there", - Nogaideli declared.
In Nogaideli's opinion, if Saakashvili had quit politics in 2007 he would have thus provided a space in history for himself but his further mistakes had dangerous consequences, such as economic unstableness, external debt growth and a rollback of democratic processes.
