“It’s all unfortunate. We have reached the point when the future of the country is being traded out of personal interests,” the leader of the For Georgia party, Giorgi Gakharia, thus evaluates the letter of the founder of Georgian Dream, Bidzina Ivanishvili.
Gakharia told journalists that “this is how myths are shattered.”
“It has come to this. It’s all unfortunate. We have reached the point when the future of the country is being traded out of personal interests, and that’s how myths are shattered,” Gakharia says.
For the record, former Prime Minister of Georgia, founder of Georgian Dream Bidzina Ivanishvili issued a statement today.
Ivanishvili confirms that a meeting took place between him and the US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan. He explains that the meeting was held on March 21 at the Ambassador’s request and “lasted about three hours”.
In addition, he claims that “certain forces actively tried to drag Georgia into the war, and this goal is still relevant today – the ruling team worked well and overcame the first stage of the threat of war.”
In his statement, Ivanishvili says that the ongoing dispute between him and the Swiss bank is directly connected with ongoing processes in Georgia and notes that “it doesn’t matter on what he planned to spend the funds frozen by the Swiss bank.”
