Georgia, Tbilisi, April 27 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgia is no longer the post-Soviet country, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said.
Russia can not carry out reforms similar to Georgia because the political elite still has the old mentality, the Georgian president said.
Saakashvili said at the opening of the sixth international competition for young scientists and inventors that recently the leader of the country with the largest territory in the world said they like reforms carried out in Georgia, but they can not do the same thing.
"They are unable to do this, because the political elite still has the old mentality, while Georgia was able to change it. In Georgia, the society was able to fundamentally change its attitude and direction. Georgia is no longer the post-Soviet country, it withdrew not only from the CIS, but also from a cultural -scientific, political and other forms of post-Soviet mental influence. This distinguishes us from them," Saakashvili said.
