Russia has warned the West against supporting Georgia's leadership and called for an arms embargo against the nation until a different government is in place. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's remarks are likely to anger the West and enrage Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili. Lavrov spoke Monday as the European Union prepared for a summit to discuss the Georgia crisis and relations with Russia. The Russian foreign minister made it clear Moscow wants Saakashvili out of power in Georgia. He said an arms embargo should be imposed on Georgia until a new government is in place. Lavrov said it would be a "mistake of historic proportions" for the US and its allies to continue to back what he called the "Saakashvili regime."
