TBILISI, September 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Some of Georgia’s politicians “wish to turn the country into Russia’s poorest province, Prime Minister Vano Merabishvili said on Thursday. “Very wrong are those Georgian politicians, who think that friendship with Russia and unification with Russia will do good to our country,” he said. “Should it join Russia, Georgia will become Russia’s poorest province.
In the meantime, most oppositional parties have dismissed such claims as absurd. They believe it is just an attempt to discredit the Opposition, because none of them campaigns for Georgia’s unification with Russia. They said the oppositional and public organizations wish normalization of relations with Russia on the basis of independent Georgia’s state interests, something the country’s current leadership has failed to achieve.
The authorities “failed to use the previous opportunities for normalizing relations with Russia” and with such statements tried to excuse their own failures.
