The issue was passed at today's sitting of the Parliament. It was added to agenda on request of Akaki Minashvili, the representative of parliamentary majourity.
The "Occupation" Day is planned to be marked on February 25th. The date is, presumably, connected with invasion of Soviet troops in Tbilisi on February 25th 1921, after which Georgai was included in the USSR.
The Memory Day after Victims of Totalitarian Regime is proposed to be marked on August 23rd.
In 2006 a Museum of Soviet Occupation was opened in Tbilisi. It's devoted to Soviet period in the history of the republic, victims of repressions, and anti-Soviet movements in Georgia.
Not so long ago mass media stated that in Gori, in the homecity of Stalin, a monument to victims of Stalinist repressions and "Russian occupation" is planned to be erected at the central square, where the monument to the leader himself used to stand.
