“The very fact of the public address tells that Lukashenka’s circle of contacts at the international arena has narrowed down and he needs to find support at least somewhere. In his turn, Saakashvili is also in a non-favorable situation, which has set recently in Georgia. That is why he does not pick and choose but grasps any straw”, - the politician noted.
