Those active on Facebook, pretending to be very brave and showing off courageous posts, let them go and fight, and not in Kiev where they take selfies, but in the frontline-if they really want to take part in the war in Ukraine. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.
“Once again, I want to remind these populist hypocrites: Have you seen-or has anyone seen-a politician killed in war? Those that talk so much, those active on Facebook, pretending to be very brave and showing off courageous posts, let them go and fight, and not in Kiev where they take selfies, but in the frontline-if they really want to take part in the war in Ukraine.
People know well, and people are wise, and they see everything clearly, how some are trying to score political dividends at the expense of such a tragedy. This is why I always remind them that this is immoral hypocrisy, and they have no part in our country’s national interests and its protection whatsoever. We all remember well the statements by the war party’s representatives, and their public defender, Madam Lomjaria, saying that they would rather see Georgia bombed, Tbilisi bombed. They made these statements, and this is how we remember them. How can one be surprised at all by anything these people do? Does anyone really believe that these people are happy about the peace, stability, and prosperity we have today? It is clear that we really do not like and we are extremely concerned over what is happening in Ukraine. But look at NATO member states and EU member states and how they act. We are an occupied state, a large portion of our territory is occupied, explaining why our every word and action must be thought through very carefully, and this is something we fully realize. Consequently, they should not bother instead of us. They must be apologizing on a daily basis, day and night, to our people, our public, for what they have brought on our country. And now they should leave us be and let us govern the country”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
