"When my German colleague asked what he thought about the existence of independent pro-western media in Georgia, do you think that only pro-western media can be independent? Courier journalist: I mentioned that our channel is pro-Western.
Lavrov: I thought you were pro-Georgian. I do not know what decision the Strasbourg Court has in relation to the ownership. This is an internal matter of Georgia, you have your legislation, and all internal affairs should be resolved in accordance with the law ".
