The Hague, 14 August 2020. The Embassy of the Republic of Georgia invited Ambassadors, diplomats, friends of Georgia and many others to attend the screening of the movie “Shindisi” organized in commemoration of the 12th anniversary of the hecatomb of the Russian Federation against the Republic of Georgia. The movie is based on true events of the August 2008 War.
The venue of the screening was the cinema Pathé Buitenhof.
His Excellency Ambassador George Sharvashidze delivered the welcome address to his guests in these very unusual times when the whole world is fighting an invisible enemy. “Unfortunately, he said “Georgia has to deal with both – invisible and visible rivals the latter being much more toxic, more ruthless, deadly and brutal than any virus.”
” During the pandemic, Russian occupation forces have farther activated their illegal works of installing so-called “border” signs, erecting barbed-wire fences and digging so-called anti-fire tranches along the occupation lines in Georgia. The process of so-called “borderization” has been going on simultaneously in 14 villages, in the direction of both occupied Georgian regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region / South Ossetia. While Georgia managed to be very successful in its fight against COVID-19, unfortunately it is impossible to say the same in relation with our fight against our visible and the only enemy.”
Ambassador Sharvashidze mentioned that August 12 marks the 12 anniversary of Russia incursion in Georgian territory.
“Today we gathered for screening of an award-winning Georgian movie “Shindisi” directed by Dito Tsintsadze. A story of the film is based on real events that occurred during Russian military intervention in Georgia in 2008.”
