The US Embassy in Georgia responded to the consideration of Russian bills in the Parliament and claims that “today is a dark day for Georgian democracy.”
The above statement refers to the plenary session, where the Russian bills on ‘foreign agents’ are being discussed.
“Today is a dark day for Georgia’s democracy,” the US Embassy to Georgia says in a statement.
“Parliament’s advancing of these Kremlin-inspired laws is incompatible with the people of Georgia’s clear desire for European integration and its democratic development. Pursuing these laws will damage Georgia’s relations with its strategic partners and undermine the important work of so many Georgian organizations working to help their fellow citizens. The process and the draft laws raise real questions about the ruling party’s commitment to Euro-Atlantic integration,” the statement reads.
