JERICHO, November 11. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that the career of Mikhail Saakashvili has ended in the red. He made a statement to this effect at a news conference following his visit to Israel and Palestine.
"The dismissal of the Odessa Region’s governor does not look a very big event, but nevertheless I’ll take the liberty of using a plain Russian expression. This 'drifter' screwed up once again. To Ukraine’s regret, which had apparently hoped Odessa would start thriving with the advent of such an experienced man. The result is equal to naught. In fact, it is in the red," Medvedev said.
He believes that Saakashvili’s political career in Ukraine is over, just as his political career in Georgia.
Medvedev said he believes that several other developments deserved far greater attention this week. Medvedev mentioned his meeting with the Premier of China’s State Council Li Keqiang, his current visit to Israel and Palestine and the US presidential election.
