Salome Samadashvili: We woke up in a country that is isolated from the USA and the EU - as for the Anaklia port, Russia and China are jointly planning economic expansion in our country

We woke up in a country that is isolated from the United States of America and the European Union - as for the port of Anaklia, Russia and China are jointly planning economic expansion in our country, "Lelo" political secretary Salome Samadashvili told "InterpressNews".

As Samadashvili said, after the adoption of the said law, we woke up in a country whose government's decisions were applauded in Moscow, and we were told by the European Union that Georgia's candidate status would be suspended.

"When Georgia was a member of the Soviet Union and Russia was a part of the empire, it was called Georgia then. So the name does not describe the content of what is happening in the country. The truth is that after the adoption of the "Russian Law" we woke up in a country whose Government's decisions were loudly applauded in Moscow, we were told by the European Union that negotiations would not be opened, Georgia's candidate status would be suspended; Also, they told us that next month they will discuss what other steps to take - most likely, the issue of canceling the visa-free regime will be raised; We woke up in a country where shares of Georgian banks fell sharply on the stock markets; GEL was devalued; Georgia's economy, first, has already received very significant blows. So, we woke up in a country that is isolated from the United States of America and the European Union, including the establishment of a regime of sanctions from the United States and the adoption of relevant legislation; In a country where Russia applauds the government of Irakli Kobakhidze and Russia and China are jointly planning economic expansion in our country, including the appropriation of strategic facilities. But the Georgian people will answer all this in October, when they will return our country to the constitutional framework by removing the reins of the Russian government," said Salome Samadashvili.

Regarding the Anaklia port project, according to her, Russia and China are planning to take the port adjacent to the occupied territories of Georgia into their own hands and "Russia will use this to avoid sanctions".

"Kobakhidze speaks exactly as the representatives of the Russian government speak because he was appointed as the prime minister by the Russian special services and not elected by the Georgian people. He speaks with the message that is written in the Kremlin. Kobakhidze is an employee of Russia, his name is simply Prime Minister. The government implemented the disruption of the port of Anaklia at the request of Russia. Russia's demand was that this port should not be built with American money and Western investment, so they failed this project. Now Russia and China are planning to take over the port adjacent to the occupied territories of Georgia and Russia will use it to avoid sanctions, which means that Georgia can be annexed very soon. But I don't think that the Russian project of Chinese will be implemented. Anaklia port will be built after the change of government with western investments", said Salome Samadashvili.

Samadashvili also answered the question regarding the statement of the German ambassador Irakli Kobakhidze that the ambassador's statements are "un-Georgian". According to Samadashvili, Kobakhidze makes lustration with all his statements that he is Putin's representative in Georgia.

"As for the German ambassador's friendship with "Lelos" or other parties, the German ambassador and the ambassadors of the Western countries support Georgia, its people and all those players, in the political or public arena, who support the European future of this country and who consider the European Union to be a place of peace, not war. as a party, as Irakli Kobakhidze. "I think Kobakhidze makes a lustration with all his statements that he is Putin's representative in our country together with Ivanishvili," said Salome Samadashvili.
