Former Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves has criticized Irakli Garibashvili and called him “COBOK.”
Ilves wrote this tweet after Garibashvili named Carl Bildt among the lobbyists of the previous Georgian government hired at the expense of the state budget during his speech in the Parliament.
“Georgian PM goes full retro-Sov. A true COBOK. Why does the EU even deal with him?” he tweeted.

“COBOK” is slang and refers to a person from the Soviet Union. Also, a person who may not be directly from the Soviet Union but shares its ideology and aspirations.
