Political analyst Akia Barbakadze on Monday warned the Georgian Dream authorities of “inevitable punishment” for their attitudes and comments on the Russia-Ukraine war, in response to recent statement of prime minister Irakli Garibashvili on killed volunteers in Ukraine.
Garibashvili said during the day that the United National Movement opposition party “takes Georgian citizens in Ukraine” to fight against Russia, calling the killed volunteers ``poor boys”.
"They [the current government] do not consider this country to be independent either, and that is why they call us to be quiet, to keep our voices down so as not to irritate the Russians”, Barbakadze said.
Calling Garibashvili a “so-called prime minister”, the analyst once again slammed him for his claims that Georgia began the Russia-Georgia 2008 war.
“It is documented that Georgia did not start the war and the so-called PM comes out and stubbornly repeats this. You will have to answer for this when this war ends with the defeat of Russia and all those who contribute to these inhuman actions of Russia, both in Ukraine and in Georgia, are brought to justice. All will be punished”, he said.
“I do not know if it will be held in Irpin, Bucha or Mariupol, but the scaffolding has already been set where Russian fascism and its perpetrators will be tried, be it oligarchic regimes or their henchmen. Get ready, you will have to hire lawyers there", said Barbakadze.
Six Georgian volunteers have been killed in Ukraine this month, bringing the death toll to 33.
