“You just have to look at your border.” US Ambassador to Georgia answered the question of who is dragging Tbilisi into the war

“When I hear from people that the US is working against Georgia or trying to drag Georgia into a war and open a second front, this is 100% Russian disinformation,” she said.

The day before, MPs Dmitry Khundadze, Mikheil Kavelashvili and Sozar Subari said, without naming the United States, that “no one will grant Georgia the status of a candidate [в члены ЕС] after six months, if until then the country does not join the war or impose sanctions against Russia.

The US Ambassador replied that America and Europe have done everything in their power over the past 30 years to help Georgia on its path to Euro-Atlantic integration.

“I think it’s very important that Georgians remember that 20% of Georgia’s territory is occupied by Russia. It was Russia that tried to kill your language. It was Russia that plundered your churches and turned them into animal stalls,” Degnan said.

According to her, “if there are any questions about what Russia’s friendship means for Georgia, then you just need to look at your border – and everything will be clear.”
