Shevarnadze: Georgia made many mistakes in relations with Russia2009-02-27 12:54
"The new president Barack Obama is elected, he will change American foreign policy a great deal. He even said so, and as far as I know, one of his first visits will be to Moscow, to meet the Russian President and then maybe Russia will also change its aggressive policy towards Georgia," suggested Eduard Shevarnadze, the ex-President of Georgia and the ex-Minister of foreign Affairs of the USSR, in his interview to Russia Today TV channel - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Shevarnadze admitted that Georgia made mistakes in relations with Russia. "On our part a lot of mistakes have been made. I don't want to praise myself and say that things were good when I was in power in Georgia and that they got worse after I left, but while I was president, I had a great relationship with the US. They were helping us a great deal in training our army, as well as financially and so on... and I also had a friendly relationship. I want to emphasize the word friendly, with the then Russian president, Vladimir Putin whom I had known long before he became President," he said.
According to the ex-President, Washington was the cause of the relations between the USA and Russia deterioration. "The signs of the new Cold War unfortunately appeared and they were initiated by the American side," he noted.
