Georgian former parliament speaker Nino Burjanadze's such frequent visits to the countries of Western Europe are attempts to improve her tarnished image, expert Gia Khukhashvili told Trend.

According to him, during trips to Europe, Burjanadze tries to explain why she had to take radical action to change government in Georgia.

"She tries to present her vision of the situation in Georgia in order to explain the logic of her actions, although I can not say if we can expect any results from these visits," said the expert.
One of the Georgian opposition leaders, former parliament speaker Nino Burjanadze said before her present European visit that she intended to tell the truth about that dictatorship has been established in Georgia.

Khukhashvili said that there was no big expectation from Burjanadze's visit, since the Georgian society does not demand her methods of struggle against authority and the former speaker does not enjoy very high prestige.

With her frequent trips to Western European countries, Burjanadze is trying to establish communication with the local media, said the expert Soso Tsiskarishvili. "

"I think that the stated purpose of the trip is true, and Burjanadze has made every effort to establish contacts," said Tsiskarishvili.

However, he stressed that the opposition sector of Georgia approached the efforts of Burjanadze skeptically and cautiously. "This is due to the fact that Burjanadze held a high position in Parliament and therefore is present in vigilance against the people and opposition leaders," said Tsiskarishvili.
