Former Georgian President and head of the Executive Committee of Reforms in Ukraine Mikhail Saakashvili said on 23 July on Ukraine 24 TV channel that Russian President Vladimir Putin once showed him his office, in which the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin allegedly worked earlier.

“When I met with Putin for the first time at an official meeting, he immediately took me to another office and said: ‘This is Stalin’s former cabinet, the official cabinet of former general secretaries, but I moved my cabinet to a small office, because Stalin was modest; he and I have always been in a small office, and I make all my important decisions where Stalin was,'” said the Georgian-Ukrainian politician.

According to him, “Putin is very proud because his grandfather was Stalin’s cook—this is a very significant fact in his biography.”

“He talked about his grandfather endlessly. And Putin kept saying: ‘Here Stalin slept, such a modest sofa; he drank from this teapot my grandfather brought him.’ Yes, what Putin showed me looked modest. He worships Stalin, so that you understand,” Saakashvili explained.
