TBILISI, November 5 (Itar-Tass) - Police in Poti have questioned several people who took part in the burning of a Russian national flag last night, a Georgian Interior Ministry source told journalists on Tuesday.
The action was held by supporters of the former ruling United National Movement party of ex-president Mikhail Saakashvili.
The Russian national flag was hung out in Poti within the framework of an international children’s music festival “The White Seagull” in which 14 countries, including Russia, would take part.
“We are not politicians. We are cultural workers and we can contribute to bringing the relations between the two counties back to normal,” the festival’s director, Daredzhan Geperidze, told journalists.
“The actions carried out by a separate group of people cannot be justified,” she added.
