President of Georgia, Giorgi Margvelashvili said "Russia has exhausted its positive potential to pressure Georgia." Speaking in an interview with Kviris Palitra newspaper, Margvelashvili pointed out that "Russian Federation's logic in terms of the issue of Ukraine has demonstrated that Moscow's political views can be spread on other Eastern Partnership states too."
"Of course, we do not claim that it will necessarily be so, neither are we launching an alarm, however, the previous experience, Ukraine's example makes us think that such a point of view can exist. But if we assess the threats, we'll see that Russia has exhausted its positive potential to pressure Georgia, which it might still have in terms of other countries. So far, there is no such a positive by pedaling on which Russia would be able to change Georgia's free choice. And in addition, I do not know any other state except Georgia is so consolidated in its European choice," Margvelashvili told Kviris Palitra.
