Saakashvili spoke out against the Soviet Union and "Russian nationalists"
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said he would resist an attempt to restore the Soviet Union.
According to VZGLIAD, during his speech to the Georgian teachers in Tbilisi Saakashvili said that "Georgia is opposed to a huge force trying to restore the Soviet Union".
"It's the wild idea of Russian nationalists" - he added.
According to Georgian president, Soviet past of Caucasus republic is "dark" chapter in its history, and only now the country "returned to the civilized international community and fully shares its values".
It should be noted that during his speech at the 66th UN General Assembly, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said he did not consider collapse of the Soviet Union as a geopolitical catastrophe.
"Twenty years ago the Soviet Union collapsed, freeing the captive nations and oppressed peoples - the dream of millions - ending decades of cold war and apocalyptic nuclear arms race - heralding a new era in international relations" - said the Georgian president.
In turn, leader of opposition party "Democratic Movement - United Georgia" Nino Burjanadze said that present Georgia has become similar to the Soviet Union.
Burjanadze, during a meeting with the head of OSCE Audronius Ažubalis, compared Georgia with the Soviet Union, and called Mikhail Saakashvili and his team "neo-bolsheviks".
"We need an adequate response to the West due to the fact that the country is governed by neo-bolsheviks, and Georgia is a modernized Soviet Union", said Burjanadze, adding that the population will no longer tolerate this state of affairs.
