Parliamentary opposition: April 9th action is financed by Russia

2009-03-12 17:49

The campaign of the Georgian opposition parties, which planned the protest action with the demand of Saakashvili's resignation for April 9th, is financed with the money from Russia, Giya Tortladze, the parliamentary minority MP stated in the air of yesterday's talk show The Accents on the First Channel of the Public TV of Georgia -


"The whole Georgia is talking about it: money comes from Russia, great lots of money spin around this action, great lots of money spin for establishment of the offices, from 2000 to 3000 lari are paid to people on elementary positions, everyone knows it. Russia is heard to be ready to come to Georgia and protect democracy in case of disturbance. Whose democracy should it protect? Burjanadze's democracy? I personally tell you that me and my party - the Democratic Party of Georgia - and I also speak on the behalf of my parliamentary fraction, and I think, I can make this statement on the behalf of the parliamentary minority: we do not intend to play such games", Tortladze said.

Kakha Kukava, one of the leaders of the Conservative Party, another participant of the talk show, called this statement "the PR action of the authorities" and disclaimed it.

"That is the same accusation the opposition heard before the beginning of the protest actions in 2007", he noted.
