Shalva Papuashvili: There has been no entry of a Russian citizen that endangered the security environment - they chased pictures on the walls, saying that those were the signs where bombs should fall, then it turned out that it was just a cat, we have this level of opposition

They chased pictures on the walls, saying that those were the signs where bombs should fall, then it turned out that it was just a cat. We have this level of opposition, - the Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, Shalva Papuashvili, said in response to a question about the purchase of apartments by Russian citizens.

According to him, the opposition, their activists and several NGOs are still trying to start a xenophobic campaign.

"Do you remember when they chased the pictures on the walls and said that those were the signs where bombs were going to fall, then it turned out that it was just a cat. We have this level of opposition, they think that the picture of a cat is a sign to drop a bomb. This is part of their politics and propaganda.

As for the stay of Russian citizens in Georgia, a year and a half has passed, there have been no incidents, including between the citizens of Russia and Ukraine. This shows that a large part of Russian citizens are Georgians by nationality, or have connections with Georgia, and they escaped the war that Russia started. Border control is carried out by the Security Service. There has been no entry that endangered the security environment. General control over the country's security situation is at the highest level. There have been no incidents involving Russian citizens. Unfortunately, the opposition, their activists and several NGOs are still trying to start in a xenophobic campaign to incite hatred against people based on their ethnicity. We see that there is a desire to start xenophobic campaigns," Papuashvili noted.
