No state agency is in touch with any initiative to set up such a center - Zurab Abashidze

Opening of the Center of Russian Culture and Language in Georgia is not on the agenda. Such a statement made the Prime Minister"s Special Representative for Relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze.

According to him, during the Abashidze-Karasin meeting in Prague, Karasin said that a similar center was planned to be opened in Georgia.

As Abashidze said, he checked the information and it turns out that opening of the Center of Russian Culture and Language in Georgia is not on the agenda neither at the state-level nor by any private company.

“I declare with full responsibility that no state structure has anything to do with the establishment of such a center, nor has this issue been discussed at the governmental level. As for one of the commercial organizations that has been teaching Russian language since 2014, it does not plan to expand its activities in this way. The fact that the organizers of today’s conference did not invite us, makes us think that we are dealing with another political performance of the National Movement”. – said Zurab Abashidze.
