I cannot help responding to the attempts of our opponents, our fellow citizens, to use tragedies very badly for political purposes - mourning and expressing condolences are things that need to be formalized, Mikheil Sarjveladze, a member of the parliamentary majority, said at the Bureau session.
According to him, the attempts to earn scores on these heaviest tragedies should be responded.
"I want to express my condolences to the families and relatives of the deceased people, to all Georgia. It is the worst tragedy. The pain of our country is very big in connection with the death of each citizen.
I cannot help responding to the attempts of our opponents, our fellow citizens, to use tragedies very badly for political purposes. All this looks like a second wave, an attempt to turn this country into a party to war, which is very hard to watch. This is a shameful thing. Mourning and expressing condolence are not things that need to be formalized. Aid in burial, military funeral honors, mentioning the spirits of the dead in our prayers, are not things we should be busy measuring. Attempts to create a political story and the attempts to earn scores on these heaviest tragedies should be responded.
The leaders of superpowers that are helping Ukraine with weapons show restraint when it comes to volunteers fighting in Ukraine. They don't do it, it's the right and sane decision. It will be an honor for the souls of the dead if we can prevent this country from being dragged into the war," Sarjveladze said.
