(RIA Novosti) Viktor Yushchenko, the leader of Ukraine's "orange revolution," will become godfather to a son of his Georgian counterpart, the leader of the "rose revolution," Thursday.

President Mikheil Saakashvili timed the baptism of his younger 11-month-old son, Nikoloz, to coincide with the third anniversary of the "rose revolution," a popular uprising that brought the Western-educated politician to power in 2003, the Georgian TV company Rustavi-2 said.

Viktor Yushchenko, Saakashvili's revolutionary "brother," arrived in Georgia for the event.

Saakashvili will meet Yushchenko at the airport, and then the two presidents will head to the St. Trinity Cathedral to attend a liturgy marking St. George's Day and the baptism ceremony.

Georgia marks the day of its patron, St. George, locally called Giorgoba, twice a year, November 23 and May 6.
