Not granting Georgia EU candidate status was a political decision. This was stated by the mayor of Tbilisi, Kakha Kaladze, 360 reports. According to him, Europe is unhappy that the country does not join the anti-Russian sanctions and does not open a “second front”.
Kaladze said Georgia complies with all European Union recommendations. The decision to grant candidate status does not rest with the government of the country.
Recall that Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili recently declared that the ruling party would not allow the opening of a second front for Ukraine. Earlier in the country, there had been mass protests over the Foreign Agents Bill.
Georgia’s ex-minister of state security believes the protests are an attempt by the United States to “educate the country’s government,” which has refused to open a second front against Russia in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
