Khukhashvili: Ivanishvili used the last "cure" for Georgia
According to the Georgian expert Georgy Khukhashvili, billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili shocked Georgian society with his desire to do big politics. "Our society is in a passive state, people are not happy and they have a sense of protest which they express at home in the kitchen. Ivanishvili used the last "cure" and his tough statements shocked the society", said Khukhashvili. As reported by "Georgia-News", he announced such position today at a press conference.
Ivanishvili did not proclaim pro-Russian position, as many of his opponents stated, said Khukhashvili. Affirming the need to resume the dialogue with Moscow businessman said that in coming years the world will again have to deal primarily with the current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
"On the contrary, he (Ivanishvili) called the processes that took place in 2008 as "unprecedented aggression by Russia". "I believe that he had criticized Putin when he said that the Russian people elect Putin, but it would be better for the world to see a democratic Russia. It was a slap in the face of Putin by Ivanishvili", said Khukhashvili.
The expert added that he has already met with the businessman, and even received his offer of cooperation.
"I'll be working with him as an expert, but I won't be in his team", answered Khukhashvili.
Recall, a few weeks ago, businessman Bidzina Ivanishvili made a number of important statements. He expressed his willingness to abandon the Russian and French citizenship for participation in the political life of Georgia. Ivanishvili also said he will sell about a third of the business located in Russia till the parliamentary elections in Georgia, scheduled for 2012.
