Press Secretary of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev Natalia Timakova has denied the words of the former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili on the circumstances of the conflict in South Ossetia in 2008. In conversation with journalists of radio station “Echo of Moscow”, she stressed that everyone says that Saakashvili is a “lie from the first to the last word.”
According to look, she sees no reason to comment on “nonsense obviously mentally ill man, the cowardly clown who declared in the international search of their own country, shamefully fled another country.”
Earlier, former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili in an interview with radio station “Echo of Moscow” told about his attitude to the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev and called the details of the negotiations between them in 2008.
“Medvedev… Well, this is certainly actually a complete jerk. Because I tried to contact him by phone. And at first I liked him, too in Astana [6 July 2008]. And he told me about the plans of the war somewhere at the disco [Kazakh President Nursultan] Nazarbayev. And then fled to the toilet, so I did not continue the conversation,” — said Saakashvili on the meeting of CIS leaders at the event dedicated to the Day of capital of Kazakhstan.
“Medvedev from itself is zero. I thought that I communicate with the President of Russia, and it turned out that I communicate with the person who does no (…). He said to me, “You know, I don’t make the decisions, and there, in Moscow, other laws of the genre” is his phrase,” — said the ex-President of Georgia.
Mikheil Saakashvili was President of Georgia from 2004 to 2013. In 2008, at the beginning of his second presidential term, Georgia sent troops into the breakaway South Ossetia, trying to take the region under its control. After the intervention of Russia, the Georgian military were forced out of the conflict zone. Later, Moscow officially recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
