#EU: Euro Parliament Considers Sanctions Against Georgia's Former PM

[world politics news]

The European Parliament has called on the EU to consider personal sanctions against Georgian billionaire and former prime minister Bidzina Ivanishvili and claimed that his alleged ties to the Russian government influence his country’s cautious position on the war in Ukraine. 

On June 9, European lawmakers passed a harshly worded resolution on the worsening state of media freedom in Georgia, an increasingly sore spot in EU-Georgia relations. The document contains a call to consider sanctions against Ivanishvili for “his role in the deterioration of the political process in Georgia." He is believed to have considerable control in the country from behind the scenes.
