What the former president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, is doing now is a spit in the face of the Ukrainian and Georgian nations, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said at his annual big press conference in Moscow today, on Dec 14.
“What Saakashvili is doing is a spit in the face of the Georgian people, Ukrainian people. How do you still endure this? He is a man who was the head of the independent Georgian state, and now he is rushing in all those squares and crying to the whole world: ‘I am a Ukrainian.’ Does Ukraine lack its own Ukrainians, doesn’t it? It is such a pity to see this. My heart bleeds,” the Russian president said.
