Nino Burjanadze, Leader of Democratic Movement – United Georgia Party believes that expulsion of Russian diplomats is not in interests of Georgia and that the decision is merely ridiculous.
“The decision indicates on incompetence and absolute impotence of the Georgian government. The decision serves interests of the US and some western countries, which artificially make relations tenser with Russia under the background when Georgian Prime Minister sent a letter to Russia last week about regulation of relations,” Burjanadze stated.
Last week, 10 of Britain’s allies, including the United States, agreed to coordinated expulsions of Russian diplomats, believed to be intelligence officers, from their respective countries. The movement grew this week to include 27 countries.
