They try to romanticize a certain group of young people, but it was this very group that threw "Molotov cocktails" at the police - politically agitated young people, who are paid 1,000 GEL, are trying to make people objects of contempt with the coordination of the National Movement, Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili told reporters when talking about the March 7-8 protests.
According to him, the opposition is trying to "establish segregation and modern fascism".
"We saw how the draft law was "branded" as a Russian law, then, as a law inspired by Moscow, then it was referred to as pro-Russian. A hate campaign has been going on lately, which is the modern face of fascism. There have been attempts of segregation by various people, including by the former Public Defender. Politicians and their families, minor children are being pressured and abused both verbally and through media.
We saw a week-long cascade of hatred flowing from these groups. The National Movement is good at spreading this hatred, so that the political discussion is filled with venom and hatred. There was an attempt to destroy people emotionally. In this environment, it was difficult to make a decision”, said Shalva Papuashvili.
