Lelo for Georgia member Paata Kikabidze was physically assaulted in Kutaisi and was taken to a local hospital. The victim has sustained a gunshot wound to the hand and an eye injury.
“The party members have repeatedly been assaulted in the region. The assailants have subjected the member of Lelo to violence only because they saw the party’s leaflets and promotional materials. As we know the assailants are not locals, and they were following others’ instructions. The fact that they addressed this person with the name and pointed to the party’s promotional materials clearly testifies to this”, - said the majoritarian candidate in Kutaisi Ana Natsvlishvili.
