If Georgia imposed sanctions against Moscow, the consequences could amount to hara-kiri. This opinion was expressed by the General Secretary of the Georgian Dream Party, the Mayor of Tbilisi, Kakha Kaladze.
He explained why Georgia did not adhere to the anti-Russian economic restrictions of Western countries.
“We didn’t want to harm our country, our people. How can we join the sanctions, without being sure that we will harm Russia by doing so? On the contrary, we would hurt each other,” the politician told reporters.
After Russia launched a special military operation to protect Donbass, a number of Western countries decided to impose sanctions against the Russian Federation. Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili announced that Georgia would not join them, as doing so would harm national interests.
Later, the head of the Georgian government promised the citizens that the country would not be involved in the conflict and would peacefully coexist with the Russian Federation.
