With “iron pens” for free elections – “Girch”‘s way to the parliament
Holding the parliamentary elections with a zero threshold turned out to be a promise that the Girchi party might enter the parliament.
As the leader of Girchi, Iago Khvichia, told RFE / RL, if they learn more details about the proportional, free elections from the Dream, the Girchis will find 13 more MPs to enter the parliament in exchange for free elections; And if no one can be persuaded, they will have to enter the parliament alone. It is not ruled out that the Georgian Dream will offer the issue of lifting the barrier to the opposition in the fifth round of talks.
Opposition parties are less enthusiastic about the issue. The opposition says they still stick to the old opinion. The United National Movement and European Georgia say that without calling early elections, it is absolutely pointless to talk about the election threshold.

Saakashvili called the Ukrainian ambassador to Georgia a bribe-taker and corrupt
The third President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili responded to the statement of the Ambassador of Ukraine to Georgia Igor Dolgov on Facebook. He accused the diplomat of pursuing anti-Ukrainian interests, calling him a bribe-taker and a corrupt official.
“The Ambassador of Ukraine to Georgia, Mr. Dolgov, who was appointed by Poroshenko four years ago for the sole purpose of fighting me, has remained in Zelensky’s position and continues to damage the image of Ukraine in Georgia and throughout the post-Soviet space.
“This is Dolgov who worked with Poroshenko’s team in unison to prevent Ukrainian MPs from observing the elections in Georgia in October last year.”, – Saakashvili writes.
On February 9, Igor Dolgov had a meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The meeting was about Mikheil Saakashvili’s statement. Igor Dolgov’s comment was released by the Georgian Foreign Ministry, where he said that the calls of the former president of Georgia do not help the relations between the two countries.

World Health Organization (WHO) investigators working at a research center in the Chinese city of Wuhan were unable to determine the exact causes of the coronavirus pandemic that began in late 2019.

But the expert did not rule out that the virus could also be transmitted from the surface of the frozen product. As for the hypothesis that the epidemic was caused by a virus leak from the laboratory, a WHO expert called it unlikely.
Human Rights Defender: The video does not show a birthday, but an engagement ritual
Two videos of the possible engagement of a minor girl were posted on social media on February 8 and soon came to the attention of the media and the investigation. One of the videos shows how a girl distributes tea to guests. In the second video, released by Kamalia Agazade, a Baku-based children’s ombudsman and head of the Azerbaijani Children’s Union, a woman wraps a red cap around a minor girl’s shoulders and spreads perfume. At the end of the 42-second video, the girl fixes the labeled ring on her finger. Kamalia Agazade points out in the description of the video that the video shows the engagement ceremony of two minors in an Azerbaijani family in the village of Ponichala, Georgia. The comments in the video indicate that the ceremony took place a few days ago.
Kamalia Agazade told RFE / RL that the video was sent to her from Georgia on the evening of February 7 via Instagram, and that she was informed that the footage showed the engagement ceremony of an 11-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy. Kamalia posted the video on the social network to attract public attention. This also had consequences. Within hours of the video’s release, an investigation was launched under Article 150 -2 2 of the First Amendment, which provides for forced marriage to a minor with prior knowledge.
