Developments in Georgia not connected with Russia: ex-president
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 5 / Trend , E.Tariverdiyeva/
The developments in Georgia are not connected with the Russian factor, Georgian Ex-President Eduard Shevarnadze told Trend in a telephone conversation.
"And Russia's interference into this situation via military revolt is completely excluded," Shevarnadze said.
On May 5, a military revolt was raised to break the NATO exercises in Georgia, Georgian Defense Minister David Sikharulidze said. The Georgian Interior Ministry said a plan of the revolt was coordinated with Russia.
Rebels were disarmed in a tank part of Muhrovani, the Georgian Public Television reported.
The Georgian president who personally negotiated with the rebels has left a military unit.
According to official data, the "incident was exhausted".
Shevarnadze said it is groundless to accuse Russia of organizing the revolt.
"I believe this interior Georgian confrontation is the confrontation between the president and opposition," he said.
