Medvedev: Saakashvili should be held Responsible for War
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 11 Feb.'10 / 18:19

Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev said on February 11, that President Saakashvili should, first of all, be held responsible before the Georgian people for waging war in August, 2008.

He was speaking to university students in the West Siberian city of Tomsk. Medvedev’s remarks followed a question from a student, who asked: “Like a simple everyman, a question of why Saakashvili has not been brought before a court, worries me.”

Smiling Russian President responded to a question, which triggered laughter and applauses in the audience, by saying: “Now I know what an everyman in Tomsk is worried about. It will be good if Saakashvili learns about it. As this [meeting] is broadcast, I hope he [Saakashvili] will be informed about it.”

“I agree with you 100%,” Medvedev continued. “Everyone should be held responsible for own deeds and he will receive what he deserves. If you committed something, especially in the capacity of President, you should be accountable and it will happen sooner or later. What kind of responsibility it can be – I think Mr. Saakashvili should be held responsible first and foremost before his own people, whom he brought into the war, doomed to sacrifice, which eventually led to the collapse of his state.”
