This immense tragedy revealed a new Tbilisi, where thousands of young people united to become a source of relief for the entire city. We all remember how difficult the situation was. The next day, all of Georgia stood united. Side by side, we began the restoration work. I have said it many times and will repeat: everything, including the destroyed and damaged infrastructure, can be restored. Unfortunately, we cannot return our fellow citizens and compatriots. Once again, I offer my condolences to the families and relatives of all the deceased”, - said the Mayor earlier in the morning.
