As noted by Saakashvili, speaking to the crowd, Georgia is fighting those who want the benefits and privileges belong only to themselves, to a limited group of people, not like it supposed to be in a free and democratic country. Saakashvili said that Georgia is fighting with those who cannot stand that today career and success does not depend on connections and money as it used to be in old regime “pro-soviet” type corrupt Georgia.
"Before the recent Police reform ordinary people have been subject to extortion, corruption, and torture. Today’s Georgian Police belongs to the people. ”We were able to clean up our streets of organized crime, get rid of the “street” and “black” mentality. Our enemies, even in the most terrible nightmares, could not imagine that they themselves would talk about the success of Georgia” said the President.
"They could not imagine that a country with no oil and gas, can build such a city, as, for example, Batumi, and rebuild other towns and villages. They could not imagine that Georgia will be able to increase its defense capabilities. That the country managed to survive all - the economic embargo, the energy embargo, various provocations and desperate military attack of the biggest country in the world and still not break down and surrender ", - said Mikheil Saakashvili
On May 6 for the second consecutive year Georgia is celebrating the Day of Police. This year's parade was held in Batumi. Today also marks another date - 7 years from the date of Adjara revolution, when the region was able to get rid of autocratic and criminal regime of Aslan Abashidze, who currently resides in Moscow at his KGB sponsors’ villas.
