Burbock accused Russia of intending to destabilize Georgia and Moldova.

German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock in an interview accused the Russian Federation of intending to destabilize the situation in Georgia and Moldova, but did not provide any evidence.

“This is part of Russia’s strategy to destabilize societies that follow the European path,” Burbock said in an interview with the Spanish “Pais”, when asked if she shared the fear that Georgia and Moldova could go over to Moscow’s side.

According to the head of the German Foreign Ministry, because of the situation in Ukraine, “Russia’s attempts to influence Moldova and Georgia are intensifying.”

“We share European values ​​with them and support their desire to decide for themselves to live in peace and freedom through the prospect of membership in Europe,” she added.

On March 7, the Parliament of Georgia adopted in the first reading the first version of the draft law on foreign agents. After that, mass protests began in Tbilisi, which were dispersed by the police using tear gas and water cannons. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, 133 people were detained at the rallies on March 7-8. The head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, said that the bill on foreign agents, which provoked protests in Tbilisi, is incompatible with EU values ​​and contradicts Georgia’s goal of joining the union.

The authorities later announced that they were withdrawing the bill from Parliament. The Parliament of Georgia voted against the draft law on foreign agents by a majority of votes in the second reading.
