Russian Foreign Minister has noted that the role of the United States and its allies is estimated soberly.

Western countries ignore manifestations of nationalism and Russophobia in Georgia. This was announced on Monday by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a meeting with the leaders of Russian regional non-profit organizations, reports TASS.

“Western curators are ready to close their eyes to the excesses of the nationalists, Russophobia, just to break all ties of the people of Georgia with our country, rewrite our common history,” he said.

“We soberly assess the role of the United States and its allies on the world stage,” the Minister added.

However, according to him, Russia does not isolate itself from anyone, does not move away from a dialogue on the issues where there are opportunities for joint mutually beneficial work in order to suppress problems common to all mankind, such as terrorism, drug trafficking, organized crime and risks of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Anti-Russian meetings began in Tbilisi on June 20. The reason was the session of the General Assembly of the International Assembly of Orthodoxy (IAO), held in the Georgian Parliament.

Following the approved protocol, the head of the Russian delegation, State Duma deputy Sergei Gavrilov, who is the President of the IAO, took the chair of the speaker.

The opposition, dissatisfied with this fact disrupted the event and organized protest rally that ended with an attempt to storm the Parliament. During the riots, 240 people were injured, more than 300 were detained.
