Hogan Lovells, one of the largest lobbying firms in the U.S. submitted a letter to the US Congress on behalf of the Georgian Dream party. The letter related to a document prepared by 13 congressmen in which Bidzina Ivanishvili is mentioned.
“Georgian Dream does express some concern over a negative statement regarding the leader and founder of the Georgian Dream, former Georgia Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili. Those comments were apparently made without any documented support. Georgian Dream notes that under this leadership, the Georgian Dream-led government has moved Georgia closer to the Western Alliance, and to the U.S., than at any other point in the nation’s history.
Under the leadership of Bidzina Ivanishvili, the founder and chair of the Georgian Dream political party, the Georgian Dream-led government has moved Georgia closer to the Western Alliance, to the U.S. than in any point in the nation’s history.
The Georgian Dream-led government continues to work closely with the U.S. to strengthen Georgia’s readiness and defense capabilities in the face of Russian aggression, to counter cyberattacks aimed at disrupting our free and fair elections and to finally see a withdrawal of Russian forces from the occupied territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia”, - reads the statement.
