Tbilisi Pride, a non-governmental organization, urges Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) for investigation of attacks on their office – the information is posted on NGOs Facebook page.

According to NGO, Tbilisi Pride office has been the target of attacks by religious or ultra-right groups for the last several months.
