The executive secretary of the ruling Georgian Dream party, Mamuka Mdinaradze, “categorically” demands Ukraine’s relevant services present any evidence of the “appalling accusations against Georgia or publicly deny their absurd statements against their friend and partner country, Georgia.”
Midnaradze’s remark came after Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said: “If we didn’t have influence over Georgia, over other countries through which the Russians are trying to arrange to circumvent sanctions, they would have done so long ago, and the impact of sanctions on Russia would have been minimized. Regarding Georgia. We are waiting for official evidence and convincing arguments from Georgia that they are not doing that. Then we will decide what actions to take if that evidence and arguments are not persuasive enough.”
MP Mdinaradze stressed that “an unprecedented hybrid war is waged against Georgia” simultaneously with Russia’s war in Ukraine. He believes “certain people from the war party [UNM] in Georgia, the opposition and those in power in Ukraine are behind these statements.”
“We have heard another completely unheard-of statement, which is offensive to both our country and every citizen of Georgia, which sadly followed by Ukraine’s statement demanding evidence of something which does not even exist and no one even thought about such a filth,” he asserted.
Mdinaradze also announced a “new wave of disinformation and provocation campaign” against Georgia in the coming days.”
