State Department Weighs In on Borrell’s Statement on Georgia’s Foreign Agents Law
Moscow, March 8 – The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on the words of the European Union diplomat Josep Borrell about the law on foreign agents in Georgia and said that it is understandable that the United States is not in the European Union, because it is in the United States. The Foreign Agents Act has been in effect since 1938.
The EU’s head of diplomacy, Josep Borrell, said the draft law on foreign agents, which has sparked protests in Tbilisi, runs counter to EU values and runs counter to Georgia’s goal of joining the union.
“Now it is clear why the United States did not join the European Union – this law has been in force there since 1938,” Zakharova wrote on Telegram, commenting on Borrell’s words.
