"Russia, on the one hand, actively tried and is still trying to cause internal instability and Russian money was coming in and is still coming in to finance various political forces. On the other hand on the international political arena Russia was actively trying to merchandise at any political price, being it - the Afghanistan issue or reducing nuclear weapons and thus gain influence on Georgia. Our partners didn't turn their backs from us and there was no trade", stated President Saakashvili.

President Saakashvili said that Russia couldn't realize any of this plans on the contrary it worsened its political situation. "Russia in the result of the aggression against Georgia, found itself in a very difficult situation. Though we suffered a great pane and lost the territories, which is number one problem for us it would not adequate to compare the situation in Russia with ours.
