Georgia’s Defense Minister accuses her predecessor of pro-Russian propaganda
Georgia’s Defense Minister Tinatin Khidasheli has accused her predecessor, the leader of the opposition Free Democrats Party Irakli Alasania of pro-Russian propaganda.
While commenting on Alasania’s statement that she is restricted in questions concerning air defense, Khidasheli said that Alasania’s charges are ridiculous. “For almost one year I have preferred not to comment to Mr. Alasania’s claims as our national security is more important than such disputes. Mr. Alasania perfectly knows that I am not restricted in my activities. Even more, I have reinstated the servicemen fired following the ‘cable case’ (a case that resulted in Alasania’s dismissal - EADaily),” Khidasheli said.
“It is a shame that Mr. Alasania has joined the pro-Russian propaganda and is speaking against me,” Khidasheli said.
Political analyst Soso Tsiskarishvili is surprised to hear such polemic. “We are witnesses a war of all against all... They must be ashamed to charge their former colleagues. All this is undermining our confidence in the Georgian Dream Party,” Tsiskarishvili said.
