According to her, attacks and restrictions on the non-governmental sector are the policy of the Kremlin.
“Instead of a political force talking about the most important issues in the country, such as granting status and the problems that create a barrier to obtaining this status, it attacks the non-governmental sector. This is confirmation of how much this so-called. strength repeats the Kremlin’s messages. The attacks on the non-governmental sector, the control of their finances, the attacks on freedom of speech and its control, which they repeatedly spoke about, are proof that this so-called “force” is the composition of the Georgian Dream, which repeats the messages of the Kremlin,” said Samnidze.
For reference, according to the public movement “Strength of the People”, financing of NGOs should fall within a strict legislative framework. Power of the People believes that “the current practice of financing NGOs from abroad creates a natural threat to Georgia’s sovereignty.”
