Georgia’s Statehood Under Danger, Resist Enemy Everywhere – Government Tells the Nation
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 10 Aug.'08 / 12:59

Russian forces are planning to attack Zugdidi, a town on the Georgian side of the Abkhaz administrative border, Davit Bakradze, the Georgian parliamentary speaker, said in a televised address to the nation.

Below is the text of the address:

The Georgia’s statehood is under huge danger.

I want to convey to you the message of the President Saakashvili and the government.

Let’s stand united and resist the enemy forces everywhere with all the means available.

We must not allow the enemy to occupy our land and we should not let events of 1921 [when the Red Army invaded Georgia] to be repeated.

Our force is in our unity; we will defend our homeland Georgia together. Georgia is doing its best for this purpose.

We call you for calm; firmness; everything will be fine.

The most important is to show the enemy that it has to deal with dignified and organized nation.

We call on you to be organized and firm and for resisting the enemy at every place, where it will be needed after the enemy forces enter our territory.
