UNITED NATIONS, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - Mental health of Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili “needs professional assessment,” Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said.
“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.”
Russia offended with critics
The Russian delegation left the UN General Assembly Hall on Wednesday, September 25, 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.
