The Mayor Claims He Gave the Finger to Security Guards, Not the Demonstrators

Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze claims that his offensive gesture (the raising of his middle finger as he drove past a crowd, captured on camera in a video now doing the rounds on social media) was directed toward his security guards, not the protesters. The Tbilisi Mayor further asserts that his misconduct can be seen as a momentary emotional outburst that any person can experience.

“Being an ordinary person, I expressed my frustration with my two security guards in such a way”, says the Mayor.
