Georgian opposition leader Irakly Batiashvili called President Mikhail Saakashvili's recent visit to Moscow a 'complete and utter disgrace' in a press conference yesterday. Batiashvili also said that 'the visit had no results.' He added that 'Russians who have great political experience created a show for the new Georgian president with no results.' 'He (Saakashvili) didn't even mention a word about such fundamental issues as the removal of Russian military bases from Georgian territory or a solution to the Abhazian conflict,' said Batiashvili.
