ZURABISHVILI HAS TO ABANDON THE THESIS THAT RUSSIA IS THE ENEMY OF GEORGIA
Political scientist Sergey Markov commented on the statement of the leader of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin that Russia will not impose sanctions against Georgia out of respect for the Georgian people. The expert shared his opinion in his personal profile on Facebook.
According to him, it will cause jubilation in the Georgian people. This is really respect for the people of Georgia, which Moscow gives a chance to stop the Russophobic coven. But if the Russophobic coven does not stop, Moscow will be forced to impose sanctions, Markov said.
«It is also important that Putin does not react to the dirty shameful programs of Georgian TV channels. Putin — power. And he reacts to the actions of the Georgian authorities. I think that the demands to the Georgian authorities will be either expressed publicly or communicated through closed channels.
1. Recognize that Russophobic hysteria in Georgia is the main reason for the deterioration of relations.
2. Take effective measures to stop Russophobic hysteria and give security guarantees to Russian citizens.
3. President Zurabishvili to apologize for involuntary or conscious pushing Russophobic hysteria. Zurabishvili should abandon the thesis that Russia is the enemy of Georgia.
If these requirements are not met, Moscow will have to impose sanctions against Georgia. Putin does not want to, but he as President is obliged to do some things even if he does not want to. Zurabishvili by the way too. Even if she does not want to apologize — she is obliged to apologize to Russia in the interests of Georgia — that there were no sanctions. And the Georgian people should be respected,» the political scientist stated.
