Tbilisi indignant at Russian ambassador predicting extinction of Georgian nation
One of leaders of the Georgian parliamentary majority Giorgi Bokeria expressed extreme indignation at a recent statement by Russia’s Ambassador to Georgia Vyacheslav Kovalenko, who predicted soon extinction of the Georgian nation. I would like to express my extreme indignation at the statement made recently by the Russian ambassador who forecasted extinction to the Georgians. I believe that such statements are extremely incorrect being made by any diplomat. Moreover, from the country that is still carrying out aggression against Georgia and that is a moral and legal inheritor of the Soviet Union, which really did its best for extinction of the Georgian people, luckily, with no success, Giorgi Bokeria said.
The parliamentary majority expressed confidence that the Georgian foreign ministry would claim that the Russian ambassador provide explanations.
Earlier, at an informal meeting in Tbilisi with Georgian artists Russian Ambassador Vyacheslav Kovalenko announced that the Georgians became a relic nation, Georgians are a nation on the verge of extinction and you will extinct.
