"We also took into consideration other events in the Georgian media, such as changing the programming and editorial staff in the Public Broadcaster, as well as the merger of private media outlets, which, according to our analyzes, became more and more under control of the actors affiliated with the Georgian Dream. I can tell you that Rustavi 2 still remains an important part of media freedom in Georgia , "said Nate Schenkkan, representative of" Freedom House ".
