I always see what he does, what he was saying and what he says... everything is calculated, measured and thoughtful.

Now it is important that Ivanishvili does not make too many mistakes," said former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze in his interview with the newspaper Khvela Siakhle. He also said that with regard to Bacho Akhalaia and Irakli Okroahsvili that the court must decide if the people deserve to stay in jail or not. What was happening in Georgian prisons in recent years had not been happening ever. I was shocked for two days when I saw video of the torture of prisoners.
