Irakli Kobakhidze: Is it not allowed to work out on May 26?! - invading someone else's private space is the signature of the National Movement, they are Bolsheviks, they are foreign agents

to the parade for another reason. Exercise has nothing to do with it. Talking about this is speculation, - Georgian Dream Chairman Irakli Kobakhidze said in response to the reports spread in the media, according to which he was in the gym during the event dedicated to the Independence Day.

According to him, the mother of the leader of the Droa party, Elene Khoshtaria, took the photos of him at the pool, which wee then circulated on social media.

"The May 26 event is a ceremonial event, where constitutional officials should be in the foreground, not party officials. Therefore, I neither attended this event last year nor this year, everyone knew that. Therefore, the uproar they tried to create about this was completely artificial. In addition, I would like to use this example to once again show the face of the Natio­nal Movement. Invading someone else's private life, space is their signature. Everyone knows this very well from their past and from the period before 2012. As for this case, an interesting detail is that the mother of Elene Khoshtaria personally took these photos, which shows their real faces.

Speculation is artificial and why? Because my absence at the ceremony has nothing to do with swimming or exercise. This is not a party event, this is an event where constitutional officials are at the fore. Therefore, it is speculation that my absence had anything to do with swimming or exercise.

Is it not allowed to work out on May 26?! I don't go to the parade for another reason. Exercise has nothing to do with it. Talking about this is speculation. We all know that members of the Natio­­nal Movement are Bolsheviks and they are hostile to the Georgian state, they had been doing this from 2004 to 2012, including when they handed over 20% of the country's territories to the Russian Federation, and they continue to do so to this day. They are foreign agents", said Kobakhidze.
