"He threatened the war and did not joke": Saakashvili revealed the details of the conversation with Putin

The head of the Executive Committee of the National Reform Council of Ukraine, ex-President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili in an interview with the Internet publication "GORDON" revealed the details of a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which took place in November 2006 on the sidelines of the CIS summit in Minsk.

According to Saakashvili, the Russian leader was still trying to recruit him, "threatened with war." Two months before, espionage scandal erupted between the countries. On the territory of Georgia, six Russian soldiers were detained, whom Tbilisi transferred to Moscow a month later. After that, the withdrawal of a group of Russian troops in Transcaucasia, located on the territory of Georgia, accelerated and was carried out a year earlier - in 2007.

Putin led me into a separate dark room, dug my nails into my knee - the conversation was eye to eye - and threatened with war. As we later saw, he was not joking

- he said.

Saakashvili noted that Putin did not always behave this way. He recalled that the first meeting, which took place in February 2004 in Moscow, lasted about five hours and that he had great hopes for its results.

I realized that this is not a negotiation between a big and a small country, not a meeting of two politiciansand I'm in a recruiting session and Putin is just studying me

- he specified.

We remind you that in the period 2004-2013, Saakashvili was the head of Georgia. In August 2008, a military conflict occurred in South Ossetia. At the end of October 2013, a month before the end of his presidency, Saakashvili flew to Brussels. In December 2013, he became a teacher at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where he lectured on European statehood. He actively supported Euromaidan in Kiev, and in 2014 moved to live in Ukraine. Saakashvili received a Ukrainian passport, managed to work for some time as the head of the Odessa regional state administration and adviser to the president. The current Georgian authorities have opened several criminal cases against him for official crimes. Since then, Tbilisi has unsuccessfully demanded that he be extradited from Kiev.

    But Putin, for the murder of our peacekeepers, does not require anything! This one is not afraid of anything. Evidently, Putin gave him guarantees? Jews would have strangled him a long time ago, for their own !! Well, why do I need such a president? And now fans will explain to me that the murder of our peacekeepers is Putin’s cunning plan?

      Yes, Putin does not care about the citizens of Russia. He is only interested in loot, and how many Russians will be killed or die in this case - he cares.
      PS Looking at his photographs with a menorah in his hands and with a pile on his head, you perfectly understand why he has such an attitude towards Russians - they are not his people.

    Putin's cunning plan is our everything !!!
    Eka he stuck his nails. Probably, they were smeared with something.
    Since then, Saakashvili has been unlucky. Regarding the rest of the elite, of course.

    He is already nobody. Therefore, everything that he wants, that comes to mind, is chatting. After all, it is necessary to exhibit at least somehow.

    You, Mikhail, apparently confused Putin with Vitalik Portnikov, who could have pierced your nails not only in the knee.

    It’s interesting when the United States threatens someone with war, all the "liberals", oppositionists and other dissatisfied people are silent in a rag. But Russia has only to intimidate someone and here they are. Guys, I will vote for the amendments only because of nits like you and those like you.

    And why he did not eat his suits and boots is a big secret ..
