European presidents back Georgia at Tbilisi rally
08/12/2008
The leaders of five former Soviet bloc states have spoken out against Russian domination at a rally in Georgia's capital. Poland's President Lech Kaczynski has told the gathered Georgians, "Our neighbor thinks it can fight us. We are telling it no." He was referring to Russia, which has sent tanks and jets to repel a Georgian advance on a separatist region. Kaczyinski says Russia wants a return to "old times." Ukraine's President Viktor Yushchenko told the huge crowd "freedom is worth fighting for." The leaders of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia were also at Tuesday night's rally.
