As Burjanadze said during a video link with Moscow, she even did not pay attention to the color of the rostrum, until such charges appeared in the pro-government media.
She also added that in her observation the Georgian police stations are painted in the colors of the Russian tricolor too.
Recall, massive protests began in Georgia on May 21 . Several thousand oppositionists gathered at the Square of Freedom in Tbilisi. According to independent observers, on the first day of the protests there came from three to five thousand people at the Square.
As the press service of the «National Assembly», which organizes the protests, reported, the main objective of the actions is to «restore constitutional rights taken away by the regime of Saakashvili». «At this stage we can not say an exact number of people who will take part in the protest, but we are confident that we can completely fill the area of the Square of Freedom» - said the press service of the «National Assembly».
«We have a plan, according to which everything will happen very fast, and the regime of Saakashvili will be overthrown. The actions won't be restricted within picketing the buildings of state institutions» - said the chief organizer of the action Nino Burjanadze.
Georgian opposition was repeatedly accused of the fact that the actions of protest in Tbilisi and Batumi were organized and financed by Russia. But the chairman of the opposition «National Assembly», the former world chess champion Nona Gaprindashvili denied such speculation of number of media.
