Georgia's major opposition parties would like to thank those
senators and the members of the House of Representatives, who
support enforcement of sanctions against Bidzina Ivanishvili.
Mr. Ivanishvili is the de facto ruler of Georgia and a Russian
oligarch, who has been involved in political corruption, election
fraud, and thus he has undermined the democratic political system
in our country.
We are calling on the Senate and the Congress of the United States
of America to support the fight of Georgian people against the
oligarch's regime and freeze the illegally obtained assets of
Bidzina Ivanishvili in the banks and in the international financial
systems in a timely manner. This will save Georgia and the region
from imminent anti-democratic cataclysms.
