Kelly Degnan: “It is too early to talk about sanctions until all chances of fulfilling the agreement are exhausted”
The US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan, called the cancellation of the April 19 agreement by the Georgian Dream a disappointment.
“Every statement made by Georgia’s friendly countries, including us, shows how disappointed we are with the Georgian Dream’s decision to leave the agreement. This was the best guide, the result of 6 months of negotiations on the reforms that Georgia needs to implement. The main value of the agreement was the joint negotiation of the parties to implement reforms. We hope that the agreement will become the main structural framework for the parties to work together. Unilateral reforms are not enough, Georgia needs multi-party reforms. “We hope that the agreement will remain in force and will continue to serve as a guide that is so important.” – Said Kelly Degnan, who answered the question about the imposition of sanctions on the Georgian authorities as follows:
“It is too early to talk about sanctions until all other chances for this agreement are met.”
The brother of an Azerbaijani blogger who died in Tbilisi is not allowed to leave Baku
Azerbaijani journalist Afghan Mukhtarli reports that Hussein Bakikhanov’s brother, Teimur, will not be allowed out of Azerbaijan.
“Teimuri was detained at Baku airport today on his way to Tbilisi. He was asked why he was going to Georgia. He was later told he would be released after presenting his brother’s death certificate. It was a very illegal act. Citizens of Azerbaijan can leave the country for no reason. Hundreds of Azerbaijanis go to Tbilisi every day for no reason. “The refusal of Teimur Bakikhanov to enter Georgia raises even more suspicions that the Azerbaijani government is behind the murder.” – Afghan Mukhtarli writes on the social network Facebook.
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, an Azerbaijani opposition blogger jumped from the seventh floor of the Rooms Hotel on Kostava Street in Tbilisi on July 14 and died. The investigation into the death case has been launched under Article 115 of the Criminal Code, leading to suicide.

Dissidents in psychiatry
-One of the most inhumane and horrific methods used by the Soviet system against dissidents was to lock up healthy people in psychiatric hospitals and force them into treatment.
Academician Andrei Snezhevsky, one of the founders of the Soviet School of Psychiatry, developed a concept that the system could easily use against non-standard thinkers in general, including dissidents. Forensic examination of people with anti-Soviet views was easily sent to a psychiatric facility, where he was beaten by paramedics, injected with sulfosin (a sulfur solution with prolonged use, severe pain, immobility, muscle necrosis), psychotropic drugs, and insulin therapy. During this therapy, a large dose of insulin is injected into the patient’s body, which causes him to fall into a hypoglycemic coma.
