PRAGUE -- Georgian Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze has rejected allegations that her country's new authorities were applying "selective justice" by prosecuting members of the previous government on suspicion of corruption.

In an exclusive interview with RFE/RL in Prague on January 15, Panjikidze said the new government of Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili is "really committed to doing everything according to the rule of law." 

President Mikheil Saakashivili, whose United National Movement was defeated by Ivanishvili's Georgian Dream coalition in an October parliamentary election, has complained of politically motivated reprisals.

In her interview with RFE/RL, Panjikidze also said European and Euro-Atlantic integration remains the "highest priority" of Georgian foreign policy.

She said Georgia is also seeking to "reestablish" its relationship with Russia while pursuing "the restoration of the territorial integrity and sovereignty" of the country.

Saakashvili has a point, Mrs. Panjikidze - as you just confirming:
"Doing according... ...to the rule of law" - not law take its course.
"Reestablish... ...relationship", un-established as Russian borsh
Prepared again since 1947-56, using nerve gas and genociding
In Abkhazia, cleansing also Shida Kartly, blocading, sabotaging.

They did it during Queen Tamar and Lashis, during thePeter,
Nephiew of Georgian King, during Russia-Prussia Zcars,
During Lenin, in 1930, since 1947 and 1950-th years.
They do it since 1956 by contingency that go as far
As repopulate former USSR by Russ-Prus Gers.

Khrutchev - vanish Georgians for the commons,
Insulted by "eti iskluchitel'nye knyazhesklie nosy".
In 1992 they invaded Georgia, as Kantariya "red"
Elected in "Lasika" insult to "Nemtcy-imperatory".
No matter what one des, even go to Russia bed.

By the way, Varaga used gang-rapes than killed,
As they invaded Russians. They didn't use beds.
Russia is terror and agression, but can be willed
By being just to them without giving up your land,
Dignity, or accepting Russia's denominating bills.

"Doing it by law", "Apeasing Russia for 2008 fail
To conquer whole Georgia, CIS and "Euro-Asia",
"Ask them return Abkhazia and Shida Kartli" bail
Don't work, you already have answer by Russia.
Genocided by Lenin Sochi - Olimpics emblems!

It is what Russia promissing to Georgia kneeling
To bandids - bill, by Putin and Medvedev, is rude,
To kill or burry in prison Saakashvili and the team
That prepared and slowed in 2008 invading hords.

It makes politicly selective vendetta of Third Force
Prudent consearn of Saakashvili - as I understand.
Russia is relentless. Even Saakashvili was forced
Agree with Obama-CIA controlled by Russia-gang
To recrout-brake me - for helping Georgia in 2008.

In the process Russia-CIS murdered my mother.
Do you think they will stop? Not if you will bend...
I am not against relationships with Russian lager,
But the boll is in their corner! They must repent...
They must returtn all they grabbed and repair!
