On the air of the press center of the Patriot Media Group, Gvritishvili touched upon the political and diplomatic antics that sadly glorified Saakashvili. He noted that the Georgian people are not used to keeping evil for a long time, therefore, the behavior of the ex-head, who fled from Tbilisi before the expiration of the presidential term, rather gave rise to a large number of jokes, and did not become a reason for hatred.
Nevertheless, one should not forget that during his presidency, Saakashvili adopted the citizenship of another country, betraying the interests of his homeland, the political scientist emphasized. Therefore, the former head of state received a prison term quite deservedly.
“These were mostly memes (about Saakashvili’s“ Ukrainian business trip ”- editor’s note). There were a lot of jokes – the Georgian people love humor and treat all these matters with humor. He was condemned as a traitor to the interests of Georgia, because when he was still president, he left Georgia, he betrayed Georgia. They called him a coward because he left the country, took the citizenship of another country. How should the president of the country do this? He was, of course, convicted, ”explained Igor Gvritishvili.
Recall that the former President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili is now in his homeland, in the prison of the city of Rustavi. He was found guilty in the case of the murder of Sandro Girgvliani, an employee of the United Bank of Georgia, and for “abuse of office” in the case of an armed attack on the deputy of the Georgian parliament Valery Gelashvili.
