TBILISI, December 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Georgia’s former president, Mikhail Saakashvili, is planning to address the pro-European protesters in Kiev’s Independence Square, according to Georgian and Ukrainian media reports. In this connection, Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Pandzhikidze said that Saakashvili’s views had got nothing to do with the position of the Georgian government.
Pandzhikidze noted that the former president was certainly free in his actions but none of his remarks, speeches or other actions reflected the position of the Georgian government on various issues.
According to information posted on Saakashvili’s page in Facebook, the former president is already in Kiev. He met Vitaly Klichko, the leader of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms (UDAR or Punch), on Friday.
The ruling Georgian Dream coalition, the incumbent prime minister and parliamentary leaders have been reacting with reserve to the current events in Ukraine, treating them as an “internal affair of a sovereign state.
