According to Newsweek, after coming to power of the pro-Russian leadership in Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan, the Kremlin became more active in hostile activities against Georgia and Belarus.
As a Russian state duma deputy, Sergei Markov, said to the magazine, the Kremlin is preparing a second "Bishkek" for Mikhail Saakashvili.
According to the magazine, Kremlin invited Georgian opposition leaders, including the former prime minister Zurab Nogaideli and the former Georgian ambassador to the UN Irakli Alasania, to Moscow for talks on how to topple the current Georgian leadership.
According to the magazine, an attempt to overthrow the Saakashvili's government might begin as early as May 30th when elections are held for the mayor of Tbilisi.
As for Belarus, according to the Newsweek, Kremlin will try to replace Alexander Lukashenko with a opposition leader, Andrei Sannikov, who is, if necessary, "ready to embrace the Russian help".
Propaganda rhetoric of Saakashvili's opponents has been greatly enhanced against this background in Georgia. Apparently, the purpose of propaganda stuffing into the media is to attempt to split the circle of president Saakashvili.
Thus, Shalva Khachapuridze, the leader of the opposition party For Victory, founded in February this year by supporters of the late businessman Badri Patarkatsishvili, announced that a plan the overthrow President Mikhail Saakashvili is being prepared inside the Georgian leadership.
According to him, the process will start after the elections of local authorities on May 30, and not later than 1 January 2011, the president will announce his resignation.
"Inside the Georgian authorities, a draft is being prepared to replace the Saakashvili's government. These forces will very quickly remove Saakashvili and force him to resign. Some authorities consider other options, such as the arrest of Saakashvili and sending him to the Hague tribunal ... I also know the other part of the political plan, which envisages to remove Saakashvili from power and negotiations with an opposition party", the "conspirator" Khachapuridze said.
When asked which group is planning to remove Saakashvili, he replied: "It is Vano Merabishvili, the Interior Minister of Georgia and his team. Members of this group realize it is dangerous for them to stay with Saakashvili, and they think about their own salvation", Khachapuridze said to journalists from the Georgians.ru Web site, which created and funded by Moscow within the framework of program to overthrow the Georgian President Saakashvili.
