The allegations that Russia is behind the attempt of assassination of Georgian journalist Giorgi Gabunia are absurd, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying by Russian media.
“I will tell you one thing, there have been accusations from the very beginning that the Russian government was involved in this incident and we have stated from the very beginning that such allegations are absurd and false,” Peskov said.
Nika Gvaramia, Director General of Main Channel, stated at the briefing several days ago that a Russian citizen, who was detained by the Counter-Terrorism Service in Georgia, was planning to liquidate journalist Giorgi Gabunia by the order Ramzan Kadyrov.
The above was followed by the statement of Ramzan Kadyrov, who called the allegation foolish. “Instead of thinking about the real problems of people, they are making stupid statements. This time they say they have arrested a killer who was going to attack a Georgian so-called journalist by Kadyrov’s order. Gentlemen, believe me, if I order anything, it will be necessarily fulfilled,” Kadyrov said.
