The reports that “great forces” wish to open a second front in Georgia is “nonsense”. I apologize for being rude, EU’s new ambassador to Georgia, Pawel Herczynski, told a local media on Tuesday, in response to the campaign of former ruling party MPs that the US and others were interested in dragging Georgia into Russia’s war in Ukraine.
"The European Union is a peace project, we received the Nobel Peace Prize not so long ago. Therefore, I can say that these allegations are pure nonsense. I apologize for being as rude as possible," the ambassador said.
He noted, the European Union “is an organisation that has always been a strong supporter of Georgia's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity”.
The domestic opposition says that the four former MPs of the ruling party, who left the GD in June in a bid to “tell the public the truth”, are voicing the “anti-Western” messages of the founder of the ruling Georgian Dream party, Bidzina Ivanishvili.
They also claim that Ivanishvili has been running the country from the backstage for many years on, the allegations strongly dismissed by the GD.
