Transfers from Russia amount one third of the Georgian budget

2009-09-16 10:10

One third of the Georgian budget is formed from money transfers of diaspora in Russia, stated Vladimir Homeriki, the president of Unification of Russian and Georgian Peoples fund. According to official data, USD 1.5 bn come to Georgia from Russia.


The state budget of Georgia for 2009 amounts GEL 2.25 bn [USD 3.9 bn].

"The Georgian authorities absolutely didn't thought about the Georgian diaspora residing in Russia, absolutely didn't thought to use its potential rationally , and called every normal Georgian who wanted to do something for his motherland, a spy and an agent", Homeriki said.

In his view, Georgians residing in Russia love Georgia much more then those in the government.

"The present-day Georgian authority isn't interested in restoration of territorial integrity, in restoration of direct dialog with Russia, because that's what their American masters tell", Homeriki said.

At the same time, he mentioned that "all the interests of Georgia, spiritual and cultural ties, as well as working places, are in Russia".

In his view, nobody is interested in Georgia's fate more than Russia. "Therefore, increasing tension with Russia every day, the Georgian authority only aggravates the situation, and leads to destruction of Georgian statehood", Homeriki added.

He reminded that practically 1.5 mln of Georgians are residing in Russia - that's one third of the country's population.
