The State Security Service of Georgia announced the alleged preparation of a coup in the country and the alleged involvement of Ukrainian officials in this, transmits Georgia Online. Speaker of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Oleg Nikolenko answeredthat this information is not true, and the Georgian authorities are trying to solve their internal political issues this way.
The Georgian special service claims that there is a certain group of people that allegedly operates on the territory of the state and beyond its borders and plans to organize “destabilization and civil unrest” in the country in October-December 2023.
This is supposed to happen when the interim report of the European Commission and the final report of the EU are to be published.
The ultimate goal of such actions is allegedly to change the Georgian government by force, says the State Security Service.
The department accuses ex-deputy former Minister of Internal Affairs of Georgia Vano Merabishvili, and now deputy head of military intelligence of Ukraine Georgy Lortkipanidze, of co-authoring this plan.
The intelligence service also accuses fighters of Georgian origin, in particular the commander of the Georgian Legion, Mamuka Mamulashvili.
The SDB states that the organizers are allegedly considering the possibility of implementing a “scenario” in Georgia similar to the Euromaidan in Ukraine.
The agency claims that they allegedly want to implement this plan “with the coordination and financial support of foreign countries.”
The intelligence service does not provide evidence in its report.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry responded to such statements by representatives of the Georgian security bloc.
Nikolenko noted that this information does not correspond to reality, and the Georgian authorities want to resolve their internal political issues with the help of “demonization of Ukraine”.
“This information is not true. The current Georgian authorities are once again trying to demonize Ukraine in order to resolve their internal political issues. The Ukrainian state has not interfered, is not interfering and does not plan to interfere in the internal affairs of Georgia,” he wrote.
