High-ranking security officials welcome Russian spies, set a table and take them on trips to secret facilities, – the third president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, wrote on social media.
According to him, Georgia’s secret maps and databases have been transferred to Russia.
“I would like to highlight some important details regarding visa-free travel to Russia:
“During my presidency, the visa-free period for Russian citizens was 3 months, patriots worked in our security services, and the Russian intelligence network in Georgia was destroyed.
“The goal of visa-free travel was to make the Russians see what kind of successful state we are, not to believe Russian propaganda and to make them demand reforms in Russia, which were very important for the security of Georgia.
“They walked in our streets shocked and looked at the new Georgia.
“And now, high-ranking security officials welcome Russian spies, set a table and take them on trips to secret facilities.
“Even our secret maps and databases were given to Russia.
“Today, under the 1-year visa-free regime, Russian citizens start businesses in Georgia both legally and illegally.
“They don’t pay taxes. Accordingly, services are offered to consumers at a lower price, meaning Georgian companies are deprived of their income and they occupy our jobs.
“Russian citizens in Georgia have created an autonomous system where they provide each other with various services, create closed networks, buy and rent real estate that is not available to Georgians and Georgian companies.
“With the help of corrupt schemes, they massively receive Georgian citizenship and buy Georgian lands, which is a particularly dangerous phenomenon,” Saakashvili wrote.
