Saakashvili states on superiority of reforms in Russia

It is reported by Obozrevatel.
As he said during a video conference, the Russian Federation went “far, far ahead of Ukraine” in the matter of deregulating the economy and the effectiveness of the fiscal system.
According to Saakashvili, the Russian authorities are listening to business much more actively than in Ukraine, which authorities are “all talking.”
“There are many things in Russia (which we are trying to fix in Ukraine) that are being solved there much faster and more successfully than here. The bureaucracy is decreasing there, the tax system is improving. And Russia is defeating us at the front where it cannot win at all because Ukraine is a democracy, because in Ukraine there is a freedom-loving society, because in Ukraine there is much greater potential, “he said.
At the same time, the politician added that in Ukraine there is a bureaucracy, which is no less an enemy than an external enemy.
“At one time, little Georgia was so ahead of Russia in reform that even Medvedev and other leaders were forced to admit it publicly and even copied some reforms, it was a well-known fact. Naturally, we could not defeat Russia on the military front, but inflicted a crushing defeat on the reform front. Unfortunately, the situation in Ukraine is different, and I really don’t like it,” Saakashvili emphasized.
