We, the public organizations and civil activists, hereby signing the given statement, categorically oppose the draft laws on “Agents of Foreign Influence” and also alternative versions of the same nature.
Dear majoritarians, not so long ago we were all proud of the strong civil sector in the region. The international delegations that came to Kvemo Kartli proudly walked around, accompanied by you, to get acquainted with the results of our projects. Also, we were all delighted that the number of young people from the region enrolled in higher education institutions has increased. Community organizations contributed to this good work, whose leaders even dedicated their own houses to the mentioned educational idea.
We all saw the rehabilitated kindergartens, potable water systems, facilitated local entrepreneurs, green spaces achieved in cooperation with the civil sector. This is just incomplete list of the projects that we were able to implement with the assistance of our partner countries and donors. The fact of the existence of the local media in the region, which is free of any political influence is also the result of their support.
Bills that share the approaches of the Russian Federation deprive our country of the opportunity to develop.
Today, we are writing the latest history of Georgia together, and we ask you to stand by the idea to which we have been loyal for 30 years. There is no position or status that is more important than the democratic future of Georgia.
Do not support the Russian bills that deprive the country of its future!
