Political parties and politicians appeal to international community

Political parties and some politicians appeal to the international community to condemn the violence and attack on the leaders of the United National Movement, the party's central office, other opposition parties and activists.

The National Movement spread the information about the above.

According to them, "it is crucial to take effective restrictive measures, including individual sanctions, to stop the alarming influence of the Russian regime in the country and to protect the rights and freedoms of the Georgian people."

"We are writing to you with deep concern ergarding the disturbing events that have recently developed in Georgia. Last night, a shocking act of aggression occurred when a group of 60 people violently attacked the United National Movement's central office, causing significant damage to the building. The law enforcement response to this violence was significantly delayed, raising serious questions about the safety and security of civil society and political activists in Georgia. Under the current regime, this incident is just one of many instances of escalating state violence and repression.

The oppressive nature of the Georgian Dream regime became even more apparent after the Kremlin-inspired reintroduction of the "Foreign Influence" law. This is evidenced by the violent crackdown on peaceful demonstrators, targeted brutal attacks on activists such as Davit Katsarava and politicians such as the leaders of the National Movement - Levan Khabeishvili and Dimitri Chikovani, as well as leaders of other opposition parties. The Ivanishvili regime is also threatening and harassing thousands of citizens from hidden phone numbers, ransacking the offices of NGOs and political parties.”

“All the circumstances indicate that law enforcement and security structures are involved in state terror and the attacking gangs - including those who attacked the office of the UNM - are organized by members of the political council of Georgian Dream, parliamentarian Dimitri Samkharadze and Tbilisi mayor Kakha Kaladze. We call on the international community to condemn these acts of state terror and to take a firm stand in response to gross violations of human rights and democratic principles in Georgia. It is crucial to take effective restrictive measures, including individual sanctions, to stop the alarming influence of the Russian regime in the country and to protect the rights and freedoms of the Georgian people. In addition, it should be noted that similar actions of the government have a negative impact on the European future of Georgia. The erosion of democratic values ​​and the intimidation of civil society threaten the process of the country's integration into the European Union and the formation of a free, open society. Your solidarity and support are necessary at this critical time, as we are trying to protect the values ​​of democracy, justice and human dignity in Georgia," reads the appeal signed by: parliamentary factions and political groups:

United National Movement (Tina Bokuchava) Eurooptimists (Roman Gotsiridze, Khatia Dekanoidze), For the National and Democratic State (Nika Machutadze), Freedom (Nato Chkheidze), Partnership for Georgia (Davit Usupashvili, Ana Natsvlishvili),Citizens (Aleko Elisashvili), Group of Reforms (Teona Akubardia).

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
