EU: Georgia is one of the safest places in Europe
European Union's Ambassador to Georgia Philipp Dimitrov referred to the results of the Georgian government's fight with criminality as to "astonishing". As was reported by GHN, the European guest expressed his surprise on the matter during his current visit to Georgia at the ceremony of presenting the international experts' investigation.
"We've sponsored the investigation so as to get a clear picture of what Georgia is doing to fight criminality. The result was beyond our expectations. As the investigation shows, Georgia's success in fighting criminals is simply astonishing", - the diplomat remarked.
According to him, 7 years ago, the level of criminality in Georgia was rather high, while now, in Dimitrov's opinion, Georgian citizens feel much safer than the citizens of many developed European countries.
According to the investigation, 98 percent of the Georgian respondents who took part in the poll remarked that they feel safe in the territory of Georgia and in Tbilisi. Thus, the country goes among the European leaders in safety level.
