ArmInfo.I do not exclude that the events taking place in Georgia are coordinated from abroad, it is quite likely that former President Mikheil Saakashvili is involved in all this. This was announced on June 24 at a press conference by the Spokesman for the Republican Party, Eduard Sharmazanov.
According to Sharmazanov, tensions in Russian-Georgian relations are not in the interests of Armenia. "Georgia is our neighbor, a fraternal country, and Russia is our strategic ally, and as a result of this tension, we can suffer losses, both economically and politically," the Spokesman for RPA said. Sharmazanov also said that fortunately, the Georgian authorities, in this situation, do not add fuel to the fire. "I think that the trace "from abroad "is obviously observed in the ongoing events. There are attempts to present this situation as a Russian-Georgian confrontation, but the opposition's intention is to weaken the position of the Bidzina Ivanishvili team. The opposition's demand for early elections also testifies to this ", he stressed. However, he did not rule out the possibility of a further escalation of the situation in the region against the background of strained US-Iranian relations. "Armenia is in a semi-blockade, its two borders are closed. If the internal political situation in Georgia or Iran continues to escalate, it will be a huge blow to us. In the current situation, I don't envy the new authorities of Armenia, they will have a difficult and dangerous job," the RPA press secretary stressed. It should be noted that anti-Russian and anti-government protests are ongoing in the capital of Georgia, Tbilisi, for already the fourth day, on the first day the protests were dispersed by special forces, who used tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannons. In connection with the growth of anti-Russian moods, Russian President Vladimir Putin convened a meeting of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, after which it was announced that on July 8, it was decided to temporarily suspend flights of Russian airlines to Georgia.
