Rallies to be held in connection with 19th anniversary of Rose Revolution in Tbilisi and Batumi today
Giga Bokeria: The National Movement has become a force where neither principles nor values ​​matter
Giga Bokeria: Ivanishvili, and his team, due to their financial and power interests, are fulfilling Putin's tasks and are leaving us alone to face the enormous threat of Russia
Giga Bokeria: Today's decision on Nika Gvaramia's case was a demonstration of power
Giga Bokeria: We must gather strength to change this regime so that future generations do not have to pay the price
Giga Bokeria: The fact that Bidzina Ivanishvili personally is not on the list of sanctioned persons does not change anything, all this is about him
Giga Bokeria on the government: They are traitors - the anti-Western campaign is actually anti-Georgian, it is aimed at losing our future at the expense of maintaining Ivanishvili's money and power
GD departees: We have information that the US offered Georgia to purchase of new weapons - this happened at the time when Margvelashvili and the opposition were trying to launch a campaign for the purchase of weapons
GD departees: The desire of the Embassy to open a second front in Georgia is so strong that they started opening their cards again and made their favorites speak out - the statements of the radical opposition confirm that the danger has not passed
Giga Bokeria: PACE President Mr. Kox was for years on the list of those who stood out for their advocacy of Putin's regime and later sympathies for the Georgian Dream
Giga Bokeria: Ivanishvili's regime is trying to create a new tool to harass the pro-Western media, which is a great danger
Giga Bokeria: Everyone who focuses on the CEC chairman is wrong, Ivanishvili’s faction is ready to simplify this rule to demonstrate that they can do whatever they want
Giga Bokeria: There has been a reason for a long time to think that there is direct contact between high-ranking officials of the special services of Georgia and the special services of the enemy
Giga Bokeria: Accusing the Georgian society of xenophobia is a shameless lie, imagine if a lot of Germans had come to London during the Second World War and started singing in German in pubs, what would be the reaction of the public?
Giga Bokeria on Medvedev’s statement: I don't know whether it was hacked or he was drunk when he wrote it, but the point is that what is written in this statement, all this has repeatedly been said by Putin and Medvedev
Giga Bokeria: Asking for mercy from Ivanishvili's regime for any reason is morally and politically a disaster
Giga Bokeria: In order to maintain his power, Ivanishvili is confronting the free world and doing enormous damage to our country
Giga Bokeria: Amendments to the legislation will not result in a demolition of the current regime; ludicrousness must be abandoned, as if something will change by passing proper laws, it simply equals entering a swamp
Peace Corps Volunteers are returning to Georgia - Interview with Rebecca Sharp, the Regional Director for Europe, Mediterranean, and Asia for the Peace Corps
Koka Katsitadze: The Reform was justified; we can confidently say that the Special Investigation Service has more capacity to ensure effective investigation
