Saakashvili depicted Russia as barbarous tribe of Huns at economic forum in Poland

Read it in Russian

Russian representatives attending the XVI Economic Forum in Poland commented on the statement of president of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili who in his speech compared Russia with a barbarian Huns tribe. Director of the Center of International and Regional Policy Boris Kuznetsov related to the Saakashvilis speech as “quite emotional, and with which the Russian delegation did not consent.”

Professor of the faculty of international relations of the St. Petersburg State University Nikolai Mezhevich remarked that “Saakashvili is looking for reasons of his troubles anywhere except for his own country.” “Saakashvili and Putin came to power at different times but in a similar situation when the states in their countries were destructing.” Consequently, a different approach was used by the presidents: “the Russian president started to look for reasons of the destruction within Russia, and president of Georgia beyond his countrys limits,” Mezhevich concluded.

A proposed press conference of Mikhail Saakashvili was suddenly cancelled without announcing a reason, REGNUM correspondent reports. About 30 reporters waited for the Georgian president in a conference hall, only to see him to appear for several seconds, walking fast from one door to another, surrounded by security and ignoring journalists questions.

In his speech at the economic forum, Saakashvili stated that Georgians “want to be Europeans,” although “it is difficult to build relationship with the European Union without being recognized.” The Georgian president asked Poland to become Georgias “guide to Europe.”
