2010-04-27 15:47

The name of the dead President of Poland Lech Kaczynski was given to one of the streets of the Georgian capital, Chernomorskaya Street (Isanski region of Tbilisi).


The street runs at right angle to another one named after the US former President George Bush which also got a new name several years ago, RIA Novosti reports.

"The Georgian people are grateful to Kaczynski for his support, and that is a modest way to thank their Polish friend. We must pay the tribute to the memory of this man who became each Georgian's friend", - Chairman of Tbilisian Sakrebulo (City Assembly) Zaal Samadashvili stated.

The representatives of the Polish expatriate community in Georgia welcomed the decision.

"Of course, we gladly welcome the decision", - Chairwoman of Polonia Cultural and Educating Union of the Georgian Polish, Professor of Tbilisi State University named after Ivane Dzhavakhishvili Maria Filina told Novosti-Georgia.

She says that giving Lech Kaczynski's name to the street is a meaningful step for both countries. "The Georgian-Polish relationship is a special organism, which is over 200 years old. However, few material traces of this relationship can be found today", - she underlined.
