Saakashvili: Putin wanted to hang me up
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said that there had been planned an attempt on him and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin wanted to hang him up, the agency "Georgia News" reported.
"When we were building democracy the pressure from the Russian side was palpable", Saakashvili said in his speech at the recent summit Basecamp in California.
"They have planned an attempt on me, and Vladimir Putin wanted to hang me by a certain place, that's I've learned from the news on TV", the Georgian leader said.
"Needless to say, this is not nice when the president speaks on such topics, however, now the most important thing is that in Russia people ventured to go to the streets and defend their rights. Everyone is interested in the Georgian reforms, and they demand the reforms in Georgia", Saakashvili concluded.
