They [Ukrainians] want to use blackmail to get the second front - Bidzina Ivanishvili cannot be forced to sign the destruction of his own country under any sanctions or blackmail, Irakli Kobakhidze, the chairman of Georgian Dream, said regarding the possible sanctioning of Bidzina Ivanishvili, the founder of the ruling team, from the Ukrainian side.

According to him, the secretary of the Security Council, the adviser to the President are directly asking for a second front in Georgia, and to achieve this, they are trying to use a blackmail tool.

"It doesn't matter to us. A specific situation is important for us. The reality is that the sanctions against Bidzina Ivanishvili have been in effect for a long time. These are de-facto sanctions that operate through a Swiss bank. In a letter, Bidzina Ivanishvili voiced the information that was related to a specific communication with him, and as he noted, there was a direct hint in this regard that there is a demand for him, and he will not fulfill in any case such a demand that may be related to the destruction of our country. Bidzina Ivanishvili cannot be forced to sign the destruction of his own country under any sanctions or blackmail. They directly demand a second front in Georgia. The secretary of the Security Council, the adviser to the President are asking for a second front in Georgia and on the other hand, they are trying to launch some kind of blackmail tool. When, on the one hand, they ask for a second front and on the other hand, they ask for sanctions, it is very clear here what their interest is. They want to use blackmail to get the second front," said Kobakhidze.
