Dear MEP Fotyga,
I’m humbled to bring my message to you at this very important event remembering the victims of Russia’s brutal imperialist policy and aggression against the Circassian people.
I’m proud to have been the President of Georgia when it became the first country to recognize the Circassian genocide. I believe only by calling things by their names we can avoid such tragedies and injustice in the future.
I thank Anna for her particularly crucial and outstanding role and her tireless fight for justice and freedom.
