Residents of Georgia responded to insults TV presenter to Putin

On the evening of July 7, 2019, on the air of the Georgian television company Rustavi-2, journalist Georgy Gabunia began his author’s program “PS” with cursing (frankly obscene) to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and his late parents. After that, hundreds of Tbilisi residents, outraged by the journalist’s rudeness, out at a spontaneous protest rally to the building of the television company and began to throw eggs and bottles at him, demanding the dismissal of the feral "patriot".

It should be noted that the Russian journalist Dmitry Smirnov saved a video on his Twitter account as evidence of an unethical act by a Georgian journalist. On social networks, residents of Georgia sent a flurry of criticism on the television company, its leadership, and personally to the journalist, who suddenly became known and at the same time “glorified” (disgraced) his country around the world.

The majority of users were not only outraged by Gabunia's behavior, whose statements were not at all connected with journalism, but also by the behavior of the channel's management, which did not begin to simply apologize for such a thing. Moreover, the residents of Georgia were indignant, regardless of political preferences and personal attitudes towards Putin, Russia and Russians. In their opinion, such behavior of a media representative is unacceptable in any case. It is enough just to look at the Georgian segment of the social network Facebook to be convinced of this. Here are just a few examples.

Gabuniya, this is not journalism, and not courage, and not humanity ... But one can’t talk about love for the motherland

- the Georgian journalist Zurab Dvali wrote.

Just try at least one person after THIS to tell me this is TV! Here is IT, which makes itself the main television channel of Georgia. Home trash, that's what it is!

- wrote Ekaterina Minasyan.

What does Gabunia's behavior look like? Complete idiocy, sickeningly

- states blogger Giorgi Cyxymu Jakhaia.

It should be noted that many users of social networks urge not to distribute this boorish video, calling it a "spit in Georgia", and Gabunia is not a journalist, but a "shame on the profession." By the way, the general director of the Rustavi-2 television company, Nika Gvaramiya, said that although he shares the position of Gabunia, he considers the live broadcast unacceptable. At the same time, the Rustavi-2 television company suspended broadcasting until security was restored. The President and the Prime Minister of Georgia have already condemned the words of the presenter.

    Ukrainian guys will "bang" this fool and the West will impose new sanctions against Nord Stream 2, arguing that "Putin personally ordered" ... He needs to run if he wants to live. Only here is where - in the West you will have to look around all the time, but the East does not need such an "asset" ...

    My father told me:

    It is so good that you represent the post-war generation, and you do not have to survive all the horrors of war!

    Yes, the horrors associated with World War II bypassed me, but I got it in all the post-Soviet years, no less! There have always been anti-Soviet (anti-Russian) protests in Georgia. And in the 60s, and in the 70s, and in the 80s. Suffice it to recall the dispersal of the rally on the night of April 9, 1989 (still in the USSR) when more than 30 people were killed! The earlier events were not covered in any way by the then TV and press, and therefore the inhabitants of the country of the Soviets did not know anything concretely. What is happening in Tbilisi in recent weeks tells me that peace and tranquility in Georgia will not come soon! Probably, this is such a fate ... Constant flashes, sometimes small, sometimes larger, and in between - frying on "low heat"! The West is clearly not in a hurry to take Georgia into its arms, and most likely is not going to at all; such a high level of confrontation with Russia is unlikely to go. Georgia will never become a country with good relations with Russia! Not a single subsequent President recognizes Abkhazia and South Ossetia as lost territories! Georgia has never considered becoming such a country as, for example, Armenia, or Kazakhstan, and accepting the terms of "friendship" dominated by Moscow! Withdrawal from the Union of "Independent" States is one of the confirmation of this! Therefore, between the West and the East, Georgia is in a "suspended" state, and this state, judging by what is happening, is for a very long time!
