The “Prometheus Award” named after Lech Kaczynski was handed to Saakashvili’s mother Giuli Alasania.
In Poland, at the event dedicated to the 13th anniversary of the Smolensk tragedy, the third president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, was awarded the “Prometheus Award” named after President Lech Kaczynski, for his contribution to the fight for freedom. The notice was published on Saakashvili’s official page on Facebook.
The award intended for the imprisoned ex-president was given to his mother, Giuli Alasania.
13 years have passed since the plane crash in Smolensk that killed the then president of Poland Lech Kaczynski, his wife Maria and dozens of other military and government officials.
On March 25, the ex-president of Georgia was awarded Norway’s Sjur Lindebrekke Award for promotion of human rights and democracy.
In the statement released by the organizing committee, it was said that Georgia is currently in a difficult situation due to the conflict between pro-Russian and pro-European forces. It was also highlighted that Mikheil Saakashvili is jailed and his health is critical.
