Close

A spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said yesterday’s protests in the Georgian capital were “Russophobic provocation,” as cited by TASS.

Everything that happened yesterday in Georgia is nothing more than Russophobic provocation. Of course, it cannot but cause our extreme concern that there were aggressive manifestations against Russian citizens, – he said.

Peskov went on saying that “a question arose regarding the immediate personal safety of the members of the delegation from the Russian Federation, and against the background of the international inter-parliamentary event, this required extreme condemnation.”

Reportedly, as a result of protest actions in Tbilisi demanding the resignation of Speaker Kobakhidze, foreign ministers and border guards, 240 people were injured, 102 of whom remain in hospitals.
