Former speaker of the Parliament of Georgia Nino Burjanadze made in the media with the statement that Mikheil Saakashvili plans to disrupt the World Cup in 2018 and presidential elections in Russia. According to the politician, the actions of her former colleagues now dictates of the CIA, and his team — nothing else, as part of the American project. To achieve such serious consequences Saakashvili can use the “swing” of the situation in Ukraine. However, according to experts, such statements — it is rather a PR campaign Nino about her and to her same than the prediction of the future actions of the former Governor of the Odessa region.
The comment of the Deputy of the State Duma Konstantin Zatulin:
“After the overthrow of Eduard Shevardnadze, Saakashvili and Burjanadze formed with Zurab Zhvania’s political triumvirate, which lasted not long, because Zhvania died under mysterious circumstances, and Saakashvili ousted from the political scene Burjanadze became President. Nino, as an ambitious woman, took his defeat much to heart, therefore, has repeatedly made attempts to return to the game. She tried to attract the attention of the American establishment, but to no avail. So now it is nothing else to do, like trying to attract the attention of the Russian media. Because of this, and heard such loud statements. Saakashvili undoubtedly has contacts with the United States, but most likely such ambitious ideas not included in his immediate plans. And hardly Burjanadze know the secret aspirations of the former companion. Rather, she just wants to be not retired political figure and current. Note that calling Nino a Pro-Russian politician, I can not, at least because she actively participated in the events in Ukraine is not on our side.
Review of the political analyst Igor Korotchenko:
“Before, Nino Burjanadze and Mikhail Saakashvili were on the same political team in Georgia. But after Burjanadze had left at home, and Saakashvili began a new round of political career in Ukraine. Therefore, such statements – it is rather their internal “showdown”, rather than the actual plans of Saakashvili. But it cannot be denied that a former Governor of the Odessa region is associated with the United States, it can be traced at least in his friendship with the Chairman of the SBU Valentin Nalyvaychenko, who actually organized the transition Saakashvili through the Polish-Ukrainian border and ensure its security cover from the side of Ukrainian radicals Saakashvili in Ukraine, now its purpose not related to Russia. We are talking first and foremost about political survival, and, possibly, in the future, the overthrow of Poroshenko. With regard to the influence of Washington in the elections in foreign countries, I can say that I’m not prone to conspiracy theories, but I can say that somehow the U.S. has been trying since 1992 and will try to influence the elections in Russia. And not only the hands of the security services, and in all possible ways. On the other hand, Russia is now significantly strengthened countermeasures against this. For example, the law on foreign agents or the prohibition of financing of political parties from abroad”.
