Clashes erupted in eastern Georgia after the arrival of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s daughter in the country. This was reported by the local edition of News Georgia on Saturday, May 20.

Clashes between police and protesters are reported to have taken place near the Kvareli Lake Resort hotel in Kakheti. Protesters say that the daughter of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Ekaterina Vinokurova (Lavrova), who came to the wedding of one of the family members, can be found there.

One of the leaders of the United National Movement, Levan Bezhashvili, said that the protesters will not disperse, the picketing will continue at night. “We will not allow Georgia to be turned into a holiday village for the Lavrov family,” he said.

So far, 16 protesters are in jail.

In turn, the head of Georgia’s ruling party, Irakli Kobakhidze, called “xenophobia” the actions against direct flights to Russia and today’s protests due to the arrival of Lavrov’s daughter.

“This is a branch of liberal fascist agitation and I urge everyone to refrain. There is no place for xenophobia in Georgia,” Kobakhidze said.

He suggested that the protesters wanted to disrupt the tourist season, and also expressed the thesis of a “second front”.

Regarding reports that Sergey Lavrov’s daughter and other family members are visiting Georgia, Kobakhidze said he relies on information from the hotel, saying they don’t seem to be on the site. At the same time, it is known that earlier the brother of the Russian businessman Alexander Vinokurov, who is the son-in-law of the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, previously signed his choice in Tbilisi.

Remember, on May 10, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree allowing Georgian citizens to visit Russia without issuing a visa for up to 90 days. In addition, he lifted the ban on flights by Russian airlines and the sale of tours to Georgia.

On May 19, the first direct Moscow-Tbilisi flight in four years landed at the Georgian Shota Rustaveli airport. He was met with protest. And the President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili published a post on Twitter with the hashtag “No flights from Russia.”
