Mikheil Saakashvili`s letter in WSJ

28.01.14 13:04

American newspaper The Wall Street Journal has published an article by Georgia`s former president. In the open letter entitled Why the West Must Join the Ukraine Protesters Mikheil Saakashvili reviews the situation in Ukraine calling it a `geopolitical revolution of the 21st century`.

`The burning dividing line between the hundreds of thousands of protesters in cities across the country and the Yanukovych regime`s police lies between two ideologies, two visions of the world and two choices of life: independent, Western democracy or Vladimir Putin`s Russia,` Saakashvili wrote.


`In Kiev, the future is being decided. A triumph for the protesters would mark the end of Mr. Putin`s dream of a restored Russian empire. Their defeat would mean a huge rollback of European influence and values. The credibility of the U.S., already eroding in the region, would vanish. Mr. Putin knows it. Brave citizens of Ukraine know it. That`s why, unlike in the Orange Revolution of 2004, this time there is blood in the streets. The police have killed protesters and openly committed torture. Disappearances of activists are regularly reported. The expression of concern by Western governments is not enough. I know Vladimir Putin well enough to understand that he is behind the crackdown in Kiev, just as his hand is at work in Bashar al-Assad`s massacres of Syrians and in the Iranian nuclear-weapons program. The time has come to hold the godfather responsible, not just the members of his clan. The Kremlin is a nerve center of the troubles that bedevil the West,` Saakashvili wrote in the article.
