EU Denies Their Reference to "Fico" Was a Threat of Assassination in Georgia

The Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Kobakhidze, yesterday dared to call out the dirty ‘wetworks’ of the “global war party” lying behind the supposed drive for “democracy,” that is, “color revolutions.” He revealed that an unnamed EU Commissioner had warned him that, if he proceeded with their “Transparency of Foreign Influence” Act, in opposition to the EU’s explicit instructions, “what happened to Fico,” might happen to him. Robert Fico, the Slovakian Prime Minister, was shot several times on May 15, by an enraged activist who thought Fico a traitor for his opposing the EU/NATO drive for weapons for Ukraine.

Last night, EU Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi, in charge of the accession of new member states to the EU, identified himself as the one who had contacted Kobakhidze. His official EU statement did not deny what Kokabkhidze quoted, but said that it was “taken out of context.” He stated that he had alluded to the protests and riots against the Transparency Act and that “possible uncontrolled situations on the streets of Tbilisi” could ensue, and then pointed to “the latest tragic event in Slovakia.” He then had the chutzpah to claim not only that Kokabkhidze took this out of context, but that he “presented [it] to the public in a way which could give rise to a complete misinterpretation of the originally intended aim of my phone call.”
