British Ambassador: We remember those who gave their lives for Georgia’s freedom

“On 9 April, we remember those who gave their lives for Georgia’s freedom in 1989,” said British Ambassador to Georgia, Mark Clayton.

“The people of Georgia have fought hard for their independence, sovereignty and prosperity. On 9 April, we remember those who gave their lives for Georgia’s freedom in 1989,” British Ambassador tweeted on the occasion of 33th anniversary of April 9 Tragedy.

Today, 33 years passed from the April 9 Tragedy in Tbilisi when the Soviet Army dispersed a peaceful, anti-Soviet demonstration in the center of Tbilisi. The violence dispersal resulted in 21 civilian deaths and hundreds of injuries. April 9 is now remembered as the Day of National Unity.
