    Putin opposes Russian parliament call for Georgia sanctions

    July 9, 2019 22:34 News, Politics A+ / A-

    Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected on Tuesday a parliamentary call to impose sanctions against Georgia, saying patching up strained relations was more important than reacting to provocations by “scumbags”, Reuters reported.

    Putin was speaking shortly after the Russian parliament unanimously backed a resolution urging the government to draw up sanctions on Georgia for his approval, after a television host of Georgian Rustavi 2 TV unleashed an expletive-laden tirade directed at Vladi¬mir Putin.

    “For the sake of restoring full ties, I would not do anything to complicate our relations,” Putin said during a visit to the city of Yekaterinburg.

    “As for various types of sanctions on Georgia, I would mainly not do it out of respect for the Georgian people,” added the president as cited by the news agency.
