The U.S. Embassy to Georgia responds to the ruling of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) into the case of Rustavi 2.
The relevant statement has been published on the Facebook page of the Embassy.
“We have watched carefully the situation related to the July 18 ruling of the European Court of Human Rights on Rustavi 2. Freedom of speech and a media landscape representative of a plurality of views are foundations of democracy. We encourage the implementation of the Court’s ruling in a manner that is fair, apolitical, and allows for a multitude of opinions to be represented in the media.
The United States remains committed to helping Georgia protect freedom of speech and preserve a diverse media landscape”, – reads the statement released by the US Embassy.
