I promise, in October I will be holding your hands during Ivanishvili’s defeat and Georgia’s victory. Such a statement made today the former President of Georgia.
“Ivanishvili restored the criminal environment of the 90s. His son, Bera, who is a friend of a “thief-in-law” and his son Katsro, formed a criminal gang that kills young people. Ivanishvili’s brother and his business partners have also formed a group of criminalized athletes and bandits, who terrorize businesses and intimidate political opponents.
Dear friends, we have no government. The Georgian government is completely illegitimate. I do not recognize its legitimacy and I do not recognize the legitimacy of this situation.
The U.S. Congress imposed sanctions on Georgia for the first time since our independence. We had always been the major recipient of U.S. assistance in the world. We had been an exemplary country and now Ivanishvili has embarrassed our country all over the world.
My fight will be decisive and I will be at the forefront. I promise, in October I will be holding your hands during Ivanishvili’s defeat and Georgia’s victory. This lawlessness, illegitimacy must be over. They are a gang of bandits. They are Georgia’s enemies, traitors, and, of course, they are controlled by a foreign power”, - concluded Mikheil Saakashvili.
