Quotes

When asked about the allegations against his government that they grabbed the TV company from Erosi Kitsmarishvili, the ex-President answered: "As far as I remember he sold the TV Company and he took much money for it’’, he said."
"Europe can stop supply of technologies to oil and gas, because Russia is one big petrol station. If it cannot get the income, it will have problems. Europe can ultimately freeze exchange reserves. It will be interesting if the U S introduces sanctions against "Gazprom", shares of which have fallen to a historic low. You know who suffered most of all - Bidzina Ivanishvili. He is the main private shareholder of the Russian "Gazprom". It is a direct conflict of interest. It is in Georgian interests Russia to weaken, but Georgia’s actual ruler’s personal finances rely on strengthening of "Gazprom’’. This is a bad news for Ivanishvili. It hits hard his pocket. He has bank interests in an area, where the United States has imposed sanctions," he said."
"The family is shocked by the accident; this tragedy is totally unexpected and awful to us. It is very difficult for us to find any explanation for what had happened. Erosi has always been energetic and active person and he has been thinking even about lots of the projects that had to be implemented during the most recent period. Subsequently, the family does not agree with the suicide version and waits for the completion of the investigation,” the family said."
"The Presidential vote last year was a key test of Georgian democracy, which we passed with flying colours," said Ms. Kobakhidze. "Reform did not end there however, and these new provisions at the local level are a further example of the important steps we are continuously taking to raise Georgia to European standards."
