Shalva Papuashvili
Opposition: The government's attempt to intimidate and arrest political opponents will not bring the desired result - we demand the release of Nika Melia, Bacho Dolidze and Zviad Kuprava
Anri Okhanashvili: The essence of the National Movement - radicalization and action against the state - remains unchanged - as for Mr. Margvelashvili, he is an activist of the National Movement
Kakha Kaladze: When you take money for a certain position, it's a very hard fact, especially when you're a politician
Shalva Papuashvili: It has been revealed that there are plans for Giorgi Margvelashvili to become a direct ally of the National Movement - Margvelashvili should confirm whether he wrote the petition or not

Mamuka Mdinaradze: Margvelashvili's low-grade, hour-long lie and its distribution in the international media was financed with $11,500, and imagine how much money it takes to run a campaign against Georgia

Giorgi Margvelashvili: In 1989, we had an obligation to save our homeland from the Russians, and today we have exactly the same obligation - every day when representatives of Georgian Dream are in power is a threat to our homeland
Mikheil Saakashvili: It is a bit naivety if anyone thinks that any progress can be achieved without extraordinary elections, or without a transitional government of national consensus
Giorgi Margvelashvili: The Kremlin backed down - regardless of what they do, whether they will put the agents bills on the shelf or actually withdraw them, they still showed their face - they are looking for a moment to change the historical choice of Georgia
Giorgi Margvelashvili: On February 24, we must gather in order to show the world the will of the Georgian people, who are different from the Georgian Government – we deserve full membership of the European family
Giorgi Margvelashvili: We have no right to torture and kill Saakashvili - the government of Georgia, which is very strongly dependent on Russia, is realizing the threat that Putin made years ago
Iago Khvichia: "Pardon me, you, the slave of Putin”, does not work - If I am Putin's slave, how can I pardon you?!
Rati Bregadze: Giorgi Margvelashvili insults the worthy employees of the penitentiary system by spreading lies about torture - it's a pity that he ended up on the side of the disguised red army, intentionally or unintentionally
Giorgi Margvelashvili: Georgia should not kill its president on the order of Russia for the second time
Salome Samadashvili: Irreparable damage to Mikheil Saakashvili's health and possible death is the main task of Georgian Dream - Salome Zurabishvili should make a choice between Putin and free world
Over 130 former high political and administrative officials call on authorities to transfer Mikheil Saakashvili abroad for treatment
