"The conclusion of Nika Gvaramia and Mikheil Saakashvili confirms the political polarization in Georgia," former US Deputy Secretary of State Matthew Bryza said on the air of Mtavari Arkhi.

According to him, the polarization comes from both sides.

“There is a very big problem in Georgia – political polarization. This is constantly pointed out by the European Union. This polarization comes from both sides. This is terrible. Polarization is confirmed by the arrest of Nika Gvaramia and former President Mikheil Saakashvili. It is also terrible when elected deputies of parliament give up their mandates.

The main and important thing for Georgia and the United States is the reduction of political polarization and tension. Of course, the Georgians themselves suffer the most from this,” - Matthew Bryza says.
