"[The Ukrainians] sent Saakashvili to us... the main goal was to organize a coup and involve the country in the war" - Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili talked about Ukrainians on TV Imedi.
On 1 October Saakashvili was sent to us, and the main aim was to organise a coup here and to drag the country into war at the right moment. Today we have no doubts about this. We were observing and analyzing the facts that developed later. We are observing and analyzing the facts that developed later. ... how we could not show that in terms of our humanitarian assistance we are on the first place in the world, we have joined all the resolutions, we have supported everywhere, we have gone all the way to the end. Here we opened Ukrainian language schools for Ukrainians. If our little country can do anything, we do it with all our heart . The only thing they are not happy about is that we did not go to war. They even said outright that it's not the government of war. And if Saakashvili was in power - these are Arestovich's words - the country would be at war today. So that's the only explanation of their irritation, their discontent, there is no other explanation. But despite all this, I understand that everyone has their own interests. Ukraine might be relieved if Russia diverted its attention to some extent," - Garibashvili said.
