Salome Samadashvili: As a result of the adoption of the so-called agents law, Georgia will firmly move into the ranks of such countries as Putin's Russia and Lukashenko's Belarus - the protests will continue until we stop the process

According to Salome Samadashvili, deputy of Lelo, the draft law on agents threatens Georgia's accession to the European Union.

As she told the journalists, the protest of the opposition will continue until the discussion of the issue in the Parliament is not stopped.

"I would like to explain to the public once again what the adoption of this law means for Georgia - with the adoption of this law, all chances for Georgia to receive the status of a candidate for EU membership will end. As a result of this law, hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens will be declared foreign agents by the ruling regime, and legal prosecution will begin against them. As a result of the adoption of this law, our country will firmly move into the ranks of such countries as today's Putin's Russia and Lukashenko's Belarus. Therefore, it is clear that neither the Georgian opposition nor the Georgian people are going to calmly continue to tolerate how today Bidzina Ivanishvili's slavish majority in the Parliament of Georgia is carrying out the task of Bidzina Ivanishvili and depriving many generations of Georgians of the right to live in a free and successful European state. The protest will continue tomorrow, the protest will continue until we stop this process. Finally, all this will end with the fact that the Georgian Dream, this Russian occupation force, will have to give up political power in this country because the choice of the Georgian people regarding the European future is clear, if Bidzina Ivanishvili tells us that we have to choose between his political project and the European future, I am sure the Georgian people will make a choice in favor of our national, European choice," said Samadashvili.
