On the occasion of Europe Day in Tbilisi on May 6, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili delivered a speech in which he said: “I believe that our European friends and EU Member States will take the only good political decision to grant EU candidate country status to Georgia and the Georgian people, because our country, our people, our government and our authorities deserve EU candidate country status. Of course, we understand that this is a symbolic act, but also a vital decision”.

However, this week was marked by the signing on 8 May by Russian President Vladimir Putin of a decree abolishing visa requirements for Georgian citizens as of 15 May 15 and a second decree lifting the ban on direct air travel between Russia and Georgia dating from 2 June 2019 following Georgian protests against a Russian deputy speaking in parliament from the seat usually reserved for its president.
