Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, expressed his solidarity to First Caucasian channel and stated that disconnection of the channel from the satellite is a dangerous precedent of international political censorship, said Manana Manjgaladze, the press speaker of the head of state - Georgia Times reporter in Tbilisi.


She said it was a disconnection due to political motives, similar to the case if Georgia stopped broadcasting of BBC or CNN.

Though most Russian channels is unavailable for majour part of population, Manjgaladze said that Russian channels broadcast in Georgia due to Western satellites.

According to the press speaker, Russia suppressed free opinion in own country, and now went outside its borders and is trying to obtain control over Western mass media with the help of Gazprom.

"The President believes that such a capitulation to Gazprom is, in first line, a serious threat to European democracy," Manjgaladze said.
