Russian diplomats left when Saakashvili criticized the Russian authorities and the Russian policy in the post-Soviet space.
Continue after the break.
"This time it wasn’t even a speech, but a set of crazy fabrications which are in nature not just anti-Russian, but also russophobic and anti-Christian," Churkin said in a statement shortly after Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili concluded his address to the assembly. "Luckily for Georgian people, this man – whose mental state needs a professional expertise – is in the twilight of his political career."
Russian foreign ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich confirmed that the Russian delegation walked out the UN General Assembly hall in protest of remarks and assessments by the Georgian President.
President Saakashvili went on to rail against Russian national interests, casting the Kremlin as an empire that does not want peace between its neighbors. 
"Russian Federation has no interest in having stable states around it. Neighboring countries in constant turmoil is what the Kremlin is seeking," the Georgian leader said, adding "an old Empire is trying to reclaim its bygone borders. And ‘borders’ is actually not the right word, since this Empire - be it the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation, or the Eurasian Union - never had borders. It only had margins."
Saakashvili accused Russia of occupying the independent states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia following the 2008 war with Georgia. 
"Do you think the Kremlin would agree to discuss the de-occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, now that the government has changed in Tbilisi? Far from it! The annexation of Georgian lands by Russian troops continues," he told the UN General Assembly. 
Saakashvili moved on to accuse Russia of dividing age-old communities. 
"The Russian military keeps advancing its positions, dividing communities with new barbwires, threatening our economy, moving towards the vital Baku-Supsa pipeline, approaching more and more the main highway of Georgia and thus putting into question the very sustainability of our country.”
The Georgian President also attacked the prospect of establishing the Eurasian Union by 2015, a political and economic alliance of post-Soviet States.
"The Eurasian Union is both our recent past and the future shaped for us by some ex-KGB officers in Moscow."
Even the Russian orthodox church became a target during the Georgian leader’s address.
"When we hear the fake music of the orthodox brotherhood sung by Russian imperialists, can't we hear the true voice of the Patriarch Kirion who was assassinated or the eternal voice of the Patriarch Ambrosi Khelaya who was tortured during days and weeks only because he appealed to the Geneva Conference against the invasion of his country? Are we so deaf as not to hear the voices of the killed bishops and priests? Are we so uneducated that we do not recall who has repainted our churches and erased our sacred frescos?"
Saakashvili then went on to his predictions for the future of the Russian President. “Few years from now, Vladimir Putin will have left the Kremlin and vanished from the Russian politics. Russian citizens will remember him as a ghost from the old times, the times of the Empire - the times of corruption and oppression.”
Russia and Georgia severed diplomatic ties in 2008 after Moscow recognized the de-facto independent Georgian republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states following a five-day military conflict over South Ossetia in August that year.
Moscow provides the breakaway republics with economic and military support. Their independence has been recognized by a handful of other countries as well. Most countries do not recognize South Ossetia or Abkhazia as independent states, but view them as part of Georgia.
Georgia’s new government, elected in the October 1, 2012 polls, said normalizing ties with Russia was among its top priorities. However, Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said in July Moscow and Tbilisi are unlikely to restore their ties by the time Russia holds the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
