Georgia is moving in the right direction, and I hope that this tradition will continue at 2020 elections – Viola von Cramon, German politician and a member of the European Parliament said in an interview with Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB).
According to Viola von Cramon, the European Parliament will not send election observers to Georgia due to COVID-19 pandemic, but will closely observe the polling process.
“I can say that Georgia is moving in the right direction, and I hope that this tradition will continue at 2020 elections,” German politician said. She also talked about threats coming from Russia.
“We have seen Russian cyber attacks on healthcare infrastructure including on Lugar Laboratory. Therefore, a special committee has been set up in the European Parliament to study the issue of foreign interference in EU countries. This committee will also consider similar facts in Georgia, Ukraine and other countries of Eastern Partnership. It is obvious that menacing comes from Russia and it is a part of the hybrid war. It is necessary that voters knew the tactics and narratives of the Kremlin,” Viola von Cramon said.
