Kakha Kaladze: Mamuka Khazaradze was told what to say and he repeats it - the Anaklia port project, with Khazaradze's involvement, was doomed from the start
Mamuka Khazaradze: Gharibashvili, I promise you, you will have to pay for all crimes with the full strictness of the law
Irakli Gharibashvili: Everyone should be happy that China expressed an interest in the strategic port – Khazaradze’s project was a complete fiasco!

Irakli Kobakhidze: Irakli Gharibashvili was invited to the event, but he could not attend - as for the ambassadors, all the ambassadors were invited, I am sure that no one would show disrespect towards the Georgian police
Irakli Kobakhidze: The absence of the President at today's event was absolutely logical, she had no moral right to be here today
Shalva Papuashvili: Which law? I spoke so much and you again call it a Russian law? The so-called Russian law propaganda has failed, it’s over
Irakli Gharibashvili: To impose sanctions on the country and people, this approach is wrong
Irakli Gharibashvili on the opposition: where were they, if this addition happened, why didn't they react there? This indicates that they are not involved in parliamentary activities
Irakli Gharibashvili: There is a campaign in Europe and the US, they bring transgenders to kindergartens and schools and tell them, if you don't like your gender, you can change it - these are anti-human, demonic initiatives and it needs to be blocked
Irakli Gharibashvili: Serving the interests of a foreign state is a betrayal of the interests of our country - it doesn't matter which country you are an agent of - Russia, America, Africa or Asia
Organized by "Georgian Dream", a public celebration is taking place on Rustaveli Avenue
Irakli Gharibashvili: I share the pathos of the Patriarch's statement
Irakli Gharibashvili: There is a fighting mood - it is a difficult situation, therefore it is necessary to continue the development in our country calmly and steadily, threats and risks have not gone anywhere
Rasa Juknevičienė: We see that the Georgian Government is becoming more and more like a puppet of the Kremlin
Sergi Kapanadze on Gharibashvili's statement: This is an open rejection of the European course
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
