Archil Chkoidzae shares the post where he refers to possible civil confrontation similar to early 1990s
There is a threat to have repeated the tragedy of 1991-92 if we fail to act in a more sensible manner. If compare the current situation with the developments of early 1990s, one easily finds that Georgia of 1990s was much stronger as a state: it was integrated territorially; more than 4 million ethnic Georgians lives in the country; the youth had no such strong aspiration to leave the country and go overseas and, accordingly, the word ‘HOMELAND’ has its different understanding; Russia was weaker than it is today; Turkey had no influence over Adjara; both, Armenia and Azerbaijan were less developed than Georgia, etc.
Destructive forces appeared on the scene right after declaration of independence. They managed to divide Georgian society and just a few political parties succeeded in engaging the country into the civil war. Such development had very grave consequences for the country and until now we are ‘harvesting’ the fruit from those seeds.
Quite naturally the question arises – when Turkey has a neo-ottoman aspiration (clearly demonstrates, without disguse); when 40 000 Turks reside in Adjara and Turkish politicians declare without hesitation that Adjara is part and parcel of Turkey; when the mood in Akhalkalaki or Marneuli is nor
From egg throwing to the effigy burning - you just go round the circle to the benefit of National Movement!

Archil Chkoidze commented burning of effigies for Saakashvili and Fethullah Giulen in Adjara in the social network. He blames organizers of the action in serving the interests of Saakashvili and the National Movement.
Let me share my view with you regarding the groups that are allegedly against Saakashvili. A few years ago, one person from Ivanishvili’s team established the NGO ‘Tavisupali Taoba’ (Free Generation) opposing the National Movement and the Free Zone. There was a clash between them and the activists of National Movement several times punched the leaders of Free Generation. That was the only achievement of the latter. National movement did its best to show Ivanishvili and Garibashvili as supporters of violent NGO.
We are witnessing the same now. A group of some 100 people holds the actions in front of the offices of the National movement: they burn the effigies of their leaders and breed the ground for civil confrontation. Such development is the benefit only for Saakashvili’s team, as they find themselves in winning position. Their activists blame the government in violation of human rights; particularly they blame Ivanishvili and Georgian Dream in supporting such method of political fighting.
I believe that today no one can gain any authority through abusing the national Movement, either political party or NGO. People are sick and tired looking at flying eggs and tomatoes from one side to another, neither demonstrations of 20-30 people can impress then. Political parties shall offer the new
Is there the time for being PIONEERS?!

Archil Chkoidze through social network condemns the Congress of “Socialistic Georgia” held in Batumi and blames the participants in anti-state activities. Find below the statement made by Mr. Chkoidze.
This type of forum runs counter to the restoration of Georgian-Russian relations, and it is rather destructive for many reasons. Is there the time for being PIONEERS and what the Anthem of the collapsed Soviet Union has to do with the regulation of relations with the Russian Federation? Relation building requires other forms and formats, and not in a way as seen by the organizers of the Socialists’ Congress. To put it mildly, it is rather curiosity when the leaders of the Political Party Neutral Georgia propose to invite Russian Army in Georgia. Equally strange are their arguments, which only refer to the development of the Soviet Georgia – which is the fact and no one argues. However, they do not remember Soviet Georgia’s contribution in the functioning of the huge Soviet Machine, including the victims of the Second World War: unprecedented share of those who perished (400,000 people against 4 mill. population) or were injured (300,000) in the course of the War; executed and exiled Georgian intellectuals; collapsed churches and monasteries, etc. Communist party and Socialism is the past even for Russia and that’s why I find unrealistic to regulate the relations with
