MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. Ukraine’s move to appoint allies of former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili to top government positions has angered Tbilisi, the Kommersant daily reported on Thursday, citing a leader of the ruling Georgian Dream coalition.
On Tuesday, the Ukrainian parliament appointed Alexander Kvitashvili, Georgia's former minister of public health and social security, as Ukraine's health minister. Yekaterina Zguladze, a Georgian politician who launched the country's police reform, will serve as deputy head of Ukraine’s interior minister, according to Kommersant.
In comments to Ukraine’s appointments, Levan Berdzenishvili told the newspaper “this is a wrong decision which will have consequences for the Georgian-Ukrainian relations.”
Georgia’s deputy prime minister Kaha Kaladze said earlier this week Ukraine’s move would “lead to unimaginable consequences.” He also said this would not contribute to improving bilateral ties.
A source in Georgia’s government circles said however Tbilisi will not sever ties with Kiev. “During the forthcoming visit to Kiev, the prime minister will make every effort to iron out a misunderstanding,” he told Kommersant.
Georgia’s Foreign Minister Tamar Beruchashvili said Wednesday the visit of Georgia’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili to Ukraine could take place in early 2015.
Russian senators have earlier said by appointing foreigners to the key government positions, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has proved that Kiev is dependent on the United States and the European Union.
