MOSCOW, July 9. /TASS/. Former Georgian officials’ appointments to government positions in Ukraine points to "incompetence of the Ukrainian leadership" and its "disrespect to the Georgians," Georgia’s former Speaker Nino Burdzhanadze, the head of the Democratic Movement party, told the Russian Rossiya 24 television on Thursday.
"Certainly, what is going on in Ukraine is very sad," Burdzhanadze said in comments on a possible appointment of Ukraine’s Deputy Interior Minister Eka Zguladze as chief of the country’s national police.
Burdzhanadze said that appointments of Georgia’s ex-officials to top posts in Ukraine revealed "incompetence of the Ukrainian leadership" and "its disrespect to Georgia and all the Georgians."
"There [in Ukraine] appointed are the people representing the regime which did not actually establish democratic institutions but the regime which violated the human rights and where the rallies were crushed. And Ms Zguladze was part of this system," she said.
Georgia’s ex-speaker is certain that the reforms planned to be carried out by these people in Ukraine "will be absolutely facade."
"They will not serve the people but will serve a concrete regime and concrete nations and so these reforms and these people will bring nothing good to Ukraine," she said in conclusion.
