Revelation from Ukrainian Governor Saakashvili: "The Situation in the Country is Worse than in Putin's Russia"

Government mechanisms have failed in Ukraine, Saakashvili, head of Odessa region complained in his speech at the conference Grain Ukraine 2016.

The official stressed that due to the catastrophic level of corruption, the situation in the country isn’t even slightly better in an economic sense, rather it has become worse than in Putin’s Russia,” the paper Timer wrote.

“Because there some decisions are centralized,” said Saakashvili, “There are those matters which fall under the purview of the boss, and the boss gives his orders… But here the mechanisms of government are broken. In Ukraine, if an official even at the highest rank wants to improve something, he won’t be able to implement it. Meanwhile, the governor said, “in Russia, if you reach a compromise with Putin, everything will be alright. At the same time Saakashvili kept modestly silent that for over two years billions of dollars have been pumped into Ukraine, but the country is still in economic collapse.

At the same time Russia is under the constant pressure of sanctions, and the West is consistently surprised how in spite of everything the country still finds the capacity for growth. Evidently, it’s all arranged by Putin. Initially, Saakashvili was part of the Ukrainian plan which intended to “send the Kremlin to hell,” show it that the corrupt elite can be cleared from a Post-Soviet society, and build democratic values there. However, instead of proving anything to the Kremlin, the former Georgian president proceeded to criticize the authorities of his new homeland, blaming it and its president Petro Poroshenko for all the problems in Ukraine.

this clown needs to shut up and stop eating his ties.


long gone past his due by date in 2008


Getting taxes from newly stolen province (Crimea), stoling goods from provinces yet to be stolen (some areas in eastern Ukraine) – there’s your capacity for growth. They cannot grow if they won’t steal something. It’s true for Russia at least since bolshevik revolution. Also I wonder how much does Assad pay for military operations in Syria.


Crimea is russian and almost everyone there is a russian. Get it through your thick skull, it’s over.

Syria is a wartorn country, you think Assad can pay Russia? You are crazy, dude.


Crimea is more Tatar than Russian


More russian than ukrainian. :D


The reality has overtaken him


As a matter of fact, he should eat all of the ties. The resulting demand in new ties, because Sakashvili ate the old ties, would result in an tie production boost. New tie factories could be built in Ukraine, and produce a considerable infusion of hard needed cash.
In addition, ties are a multi use thing. One could use ties to rebuild ties with Russia, or one could go and build Tie fighters out of them. I am sure candidate Darth Vader (possibly the least corrupt candidate in Odessa) would approve of the concept.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
