Maka Bochorishvili: The European Union is not the Soviet Union, we want membership in the European Union to protect the Georgian identity, dignity, sovereignty, freedom of the future generation, and not to stand on one foot in the corner

We are working on the implementation of the recommendations of the European Union, and you need the European future of the country only for speculations and as a weapon, said Maka Bochorishvili, the Chairwoman of the European Integration Committee, at the plenary session of the Parliament.

According to her, attaching a Russian label to the draft laws in the Parliament is a crime.

"Treason is what you do every day: you consciously lobby the country not to get candidate status under this government, and then you use it to take over the government. What Vashadze and his company are doing today in Brussels is a crime; It is a crime to attach a Russian label to draft laws in the Parliament of Georgia and to the legislative process in general; It is a crime when you call the government of Georgia Russian and by doing so you want to cause such processes that will not only deprive the country of its European future, but may also put its existence into question. The European Union is not the Soviet Union. We want membership in the European Union to protect the Georgian identity, dignity, sovereignty of Georgia, freedom of the future generation of Georgia, and not to stand on one foot in the corner," said Maka Bochorishvili.

Robin Wagener - With the law on "transparency of foreign influence", there will be no EU membership - No chance for that
Estonian Ambassador to Georgia - If we want EU membership, we should all play by the rules - The Georgian Government on the one hand says that they are moving closer to the EU, but their actions do not prove that
