Avakov said that such a relationship has been established between them since the days of the revolution of dignity.
“However, I have my own point of view on a range of issues, and it’s my job this point to promote, and the work of the President and other functionaries, this point of view to discuss. The fact that senior government figures from time to time gather and discuss topical issues – this is normal. Indeed, all these discussions do not occur smoothly, but occur within a normal working discussion. Such that Ah, they had a fight and threw each other a glass of water – it is not. A glass of water – only one [Saakashvili],” said he.
