However, there is no reason not to believe the opposition, which wanted to overthrow Saakashvili, and demonstrates that it is ready to go to the aggravation, said Zatulin.
In the interview, he underlined that the power in Georgia has never changed legally in modern history: Gamsakhurdia, Shevardnadze and Saakashvili came to power through the coups.
The expert also pay attention to the fact that the authorities of Sakartvelo and the opposition are oriented to the West and to NATO, and htey are set up against Russia.
According to Zatulin, one of the goals of the current opposition action was to draw attention and support of the West to itself by taking it away from Saakashvili.
"The aim of the opposition is to drag the West on its side. The opposition, as well as the authorities, hopes for the West" - said Zatulin.
"The opposition does not take ideas from Russia, but from the West. And whoever comes to replace Saakashvili, the most that we can expect is to improve official relations" - concluded Zatulin.
