A rally in support of the Russian troops deployment in Georgia has taken place today in the city of Telavi.
Socialist Georgia has initiated the movement. Valeriy Kvartskheliya, journalist and former spokesperson of the president Eduard Shevardnadze, headed the organization.
He believes the country keeps to improper policy towards Russia. Georgia's aggression damages its own interests, according to him.
'We should restore diplomatic, economic, cultural relations with Russia, we should completely change our policy,' he said, adding that in case Georgia 'is aggressive towards Russia, it will be aggressive towards us as well'.
Beside that, Valeriy Kvartskheliya strongly criticized 'intention of the country's authorities to deploy American military bases in the country'.
