Georgia is an example of the consequences of Western geopolitical engineering, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a meeting with the heads of Russian regional non-profit organizations on June 24.
“Another example of the consequences of geopolitical engineering, which our Western colleagues are engaged in, is Georgia,” said Lavrov said, adding that “Western curators are ready to shut their eyes to the excesses of the ultranationalists and to Russophobia, just to break all ties between the people of Georgia and our country, and to rewrite our common history.”
At the same time, Ukraine also displays the sad results of such a policy where, following foreign advice, thos country with great potential has turned into a constant applicant for international assistance with a weak economy, believes the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“The country with an enormous potential under the Poroshenko regime … has been relegated to the status of an applicant for international assistance; it lost its industrial base, and it still suffers from a huge outflow of working-age people,” commented Lavrov.
Protests in Georgia broke out on June 20 at the opening session of the 26th General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy (IAO) which took place in the Georgian parliament, where the Russian MP Sergei Gavrilov, IAO President, a member of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF), addressed the delegates. Opposition members from the United National Movement (UNM) and European Georgia (EG) parties were outraged by the fact that Gavrilov was seated in the Georgian Parliament speaker’s chair.
The opposition protesters demanded the departure of the Russian delegation from the country, the resignation of the government, including Parliament Speaker Irakli Kobakhidze and Interior Minister Georgy Gakharia. The protests have escalated into riots.
