As was reported by VZGLYAD, Rezonansi periodical published an article reminding of the Georgian president's February meeting. After that, Saakashvili told the deputies that an influential periodical, The Financial Times, assigned to Georgia a status of a country that has achieved best results in corruption control. According to the journalists, this publication was not an author's article but an advertisement valued at 100 thousand pounds.
According to Transparency International organization, the text was also printed in the advertising section and can in no way be regarded as a serious analytical article.
Let us remind you that no so long ago, President of Georgia got into another scandal. The opening of running water in the village of Argveti of Sachkhersky region attended by Mikhail Saakashvili turned out to be a mere performance.
Mikhail Saakashvili had promised a native of Argveti, a famous Georgian poet Mukhran Machavariani who died last May, to build a water pipe. During the startup ceremony, the president of Georgia drank some water from the tap and reported that its total cost was over 700 thousand dollars.
However, according to Maestro TV company, the water pipe construction has not yet been completed and the water for the testing was supplied from fire tankers. It is also noted that this could harm Saakashvili's health for this water is unfit to drink.
Local residents say they have no water so far and blame local authorities for that.
