Irakli Kobakhidze: Russian Federation was the aggressor and the initiator of the war in 2008

Naturally, Russian Federation was the aggressor and the initiator of the war in 2008 and every action was held according to Russian scenario”, - the Speaker, Irakli Kobakhidze commented to media.

In response to the question about the statement by the Presidential candidate, Salome Zurabishvili, the Speaker noted that he has discussed it with Mme. Zurabishvili and they achieved the joint approach.

Due to the objective reasons, I have not personally heard this statement, though I have discussed it with Mme. Zurabishvili and we achieved the common approach, which envisages that Russian Federation was the aggressor and the initiator of the war in 2008. Everything was fulfilled according to Russian scenario drafted in the Kremlin, though we shall also underline that this scenario would fail without the mistakes and unreasonable actions of the President and Government of Georgia. It was our approach we discussed and I hope that we will ultimately agree on this approach. I have not heard the statement in person though I know about the attitude of Mme. Zurabishvili regarding this issue”.
