Burjanadze: Saakashvili building Potemkin Villages for the West. 16034.jpegLeader of the Georgian opposition Nino Burjanadze stated that Mikhail Saakashvili spends millions of dollars on the PR-campaign aimed at promoting unreal reforms.


According to Burjanadze, the head of the Georgian state is busy constructing Potemkin Villages. "Unfortunately, reforms that exist on paper are practically never realized, though many of them are very good indeed. There was a reform of constructing 100 new hospitals that I used to support but this plan is still not implemented, though it was developed four or five years ago. There are many bright ideas that are still unrealized", - she added in an interview to Delo newspaper.

Burjanadze underlined that even those innovations that seem to be effective at first thought really harm the country's population. She referred to the police reform. "Traffic police will really take no bribe from you but you will pay a fine that is two or three times greater than the ones you paid earlier, including the bribe. Because now the bribe has been institutionalized; you pay a fine and the policeman gets a nice wage supplement for each fine. Thus, he is interested not in preventing violations but, vice versa, in recording them even when they are not in place", - leader of the United Georgia Democratic Movement assured.

She added that Mikhail Saakashvili pays big money to several PR-companies working for him abroad. According to Burjanadze, such expenditure amounts to several million dollars per year.
Earlier, Burjanadze stated that the government of the country may be replaced only by way of revolution.
"So far as Saakashvili is the president, there is only one way to change the government - a mass protest and forcible resignation; there is no other way out, unfortunately", - she said.
