Salome Zurabishvili: We have an Occupying Line, within Georgian Territory, that is Moving Every Day

In an interview with Euronews, the Georgia’s President-elect and first woman head of state, Salome Zurabishvili, said that aggression from Vladimir Putin on that border has never stopped.

“We have an occupying line, within Georgian territory, that is moving every day,” she asserted. Zurabishvili also told euronews that her priority was to bring Georgia closer to Europe.

“I’ve been elected by a society that wants more Europe,” she said.

“The second round of Georgia’s presidential election was competitive and candidates were able to campaign freely, however one side enjoyed an undue advantage and the negative character of the campaign on both sides undermined the process.”
