In Kutaisi, after the meeting between Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili with his party members at the headquarters of the United National Movement, dozens of people surrounded president's motorcade. Initially, the protesters shouted "coward", "traitor" and "resign", and then started throwing stones at the car of the president, the Russian News Service reports. Only police officers managed to stop them.


Later, speaking to colleagues, Saakashvili called the happening in Georgia "a temporary phenomenon, which is contrary to the fundamental principles of democracy".

After the meeting at City Hall Saakashvili left the building via other exit and moved to the office of the National Movement, but there he was met by protesters. The President was able to leave the office of the UNM only with help of his security.

According to Georgian media, the action was attended by about 600 people.

In turn, as reported by the Interfax, Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili urged the population to refrain from provocations, and the police - to timely investigate the incident in Kutaisi.

"We are the responsible authority, and we condemn any aggression, no matter against whom it is directed", he said.

"I also call on the law enforcement agencies to timely investigate the incident and to stop such provocations in the future", Bidzina Ivanishvili said.
