US Congressman Pete Olson calls Bidzina Ivanishvili Vladimir Putin’s puppet

 US Congressman Pete Olson, when delivering a speech in Congress, called Bidzina Ivanishvili a puppet of Vladimir Putin. He also urged Congressmen to support the protest movement in Georgia and raise their voices in support of freedom in Georgia.

“I have a question: what do Sesame Street character Oscar the Grouch and Georgian oligarch Bidzina Ivanishvili have in common? Both of them are puppets, who make their home dirty. Vladimir Putin’s puppet attacked investments and hurt fundamental human rights in Georgia. I support the demand of the Georgian people to end corruption and Russian influence in the country”, - said Olson.

He also talked about the American oil company Frontera Resources.

“It has been creating jobs in America and Georgia for years, it has been creating freedom in Georgia. This was until the Georgian government took over all of its operations and equipment. Of course, Putin is happy about taking control of Georgia"s oil, while Ivanishvili"s puppet is getting rich.

It is time to wake up, because protesters in Georgia need our support. Join me to raise our voice in support of freedom in Georgia”, - concluded the Congressman
