The relations between Russia and Georgia are currently in a difficult period. In recent time, Georgia has successively erupted protests against the Tbilisi government and Russia, triggering an anti-Russian upsurge and temporarily suspending the air links between Russia and Georgia.
Last Sunday, Georgia’s "Rustavi-2" TV host Georgi Gabnia spoke to Putin on his show, He humiliated the Russian president with very crude words and insulted Putin's late parents.
In the past two days, despite the fact that Georgian Internet users and the president, prime minister, diplomatic The Ministry has condemned Gabnia’s practice.
But Moscow believes this is not enough. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Georgian militantsIs launching a blatant provocation against Russia, the Libilisi government should punish the relevant personnel.
Under heavy pressure, the general manager of "Rustavi-2" TV station had to apologize publicly. He declared that the "mode of expression" chosen by the host was impossible Accepted, the Ethics Committee has decided to suspend work in Gabnia for a period of two months.
At the same time, “Rustavi-2” emphasized that the TV station advocates “freedom of expression” and the highest mission of running the station is to love Georgia and defend Georgia Therefore, any attack against Russian President Putin is reasonable.
So, President Putin’s spokesperson Dmitry Peskov pointed out that Georgia "Anti-Russian activities" continue to intensify, but the government does not intend to control extremist thugs.
On July 8th and 9th, all factions of the Russian State Duma reached an agreement and called on the Russian government toGia imposed severe sanctions: stop importing Georgian wine and mineral water; restrict the business of remittances from Russia to Georgia.
However, Russian President Putin opposed imposing sanctions on Georgia.

As president, he does not recommend sanctions to make Russia-Georgia relations more complicated.
