Giga Bokeria says that the letter of protest sent by Russia to the Georgian authorities and the concerns expressed about the party's demonstration indicate that the representatives of the adversarial state were "hurt" considerably by the rally.
"We must remember that in addition to Russia's aggression against freedom by direct military means in the world, including in Georgia and Ukraine, they are waging war for so-called moral supremacy. Call it an ideological or value-based world if you want, where we are confronted with this torent of delusion and virtual reality. We must respond with a clear moral position, a principle-based position that is pragmatic at the same time, and we must be efficient.
I believe the demonstration organized by European Georgia was effective. Against the shameful behavior of the Georgian government, we were able to demonstrate and bring it to the international spotlight, that this government does not represent a great majority of Georgian society. The representatives of our adversarial state have been hurt greatly by this. Therefore, it is noteworthy that they reacted so aggressively to our rally," - Bokeria said.
The MFA of Russia issued a statement regarding the January 26 demonstration of European Georgia near the Russian Federation Interests Section at the Embassy of the Swiss Confederation in Tbilisi and sent a letter of protest to the MFA of Georgia.
Deputy Director of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry A. Zaitsev expressed concern over the demonstration supporting Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, saying that the building's primary and backup power supplies were shut down during the rally.
