We do not believe (about the banner of the Alliance of Patriots)
The fact that Georgia has not occupied the territory from Nikopsia to Derbent for many centuries is a historical fact. Exactly as well as the fact that today the territorial integrity of Georgia has been violated and violated by the Russian Federation. This fact is recognized by the international community. The Alliance of Patriots Party has been conducting anti-Turkish propaganda for many years, trying to replace the Russian Federation in the minds of the Georgian population with Turkey, as the country that occupied our territories.
Today, they no longer hesitate to place such provocative slogans on election banners. Meanwhile, the State Security Service of Georgia in its guiding documents explicitly writes that harming relations with neighboring countries is one of the priority tasks of the intelligence services of foreign states. They’re writing, but not in a hurry to start an investigation about the fact that a specific political party with Russian money is engaged in open Russian propaganda in the country. If we had a government that cares about the country’s national interests, such an investigation would have been not only started long ago, but also brought to its logical conclusion. In the meantime, we are offered to believe the Georgian Dream, which decisively condemns the “patriots”… but we don’t believe in that.
