UNITED NATIONS, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian delegation left the UN General Assembly Hall on Wednesday while Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili was making a speech.
Diplomats left the hall, when Saakashivili started criticizing the Russian authorities and Russia’s policy on the post-Soviet space.
“This time this was not even a speech, this was a train of crackpot thoughts that were not simply of anti-Russian, but of Russophobe and anti-Orthodox nature,” Churkin said. “It is a fortune for the Georgian people that the twilight of political career of the person, whose mental health needs professional assessment is coming."
