    Georgia celebrates Day of Independence

    Today, residents of Georgia celebrate Independence Day. In 1918, the First Democratic Government led by Noe Jordania declared its independence.

    However, the Georgian Democratic Republic existed for 2.5 years and was dissolved in 1921 following the establishment of Soviet power.

    Instead of the GDR, the Socialist Soviet Republic of Georgia appeared, which later became part of the TSFSR.

    Georgia regained its sovereignty in 1991 after the adoption of the "Act of Restoration of State Independence" on April 9 based on the results of a referendum.

    Festive celebrations will take place in all cities of the country today. The main events are planned on Freedom Square and Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi.

    Exhibitions of military equipment, fairs, as well as theatrical performances and performances of national ensembles are organized in the capital.

    Georgia follows the path of Moses
    At the celebration ceremony, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze said that after regaining independence in 1991 Georgia was following "the path of Moses", which would lead it to the "Promised Land".

    He noted that Georgia should become a full member of the EU by 2030. The Prime Minister emphasized that the government stood guard over the country's sovereignty and protected its national interests, despite the fact that Georgia continued to face problems.

    Kobakhidze said that it was the unity and reasonable actions of the people and authorities that preserved peace in Georgia. The Prime Minister added that this could not be prevented by numerous betrayals, including the betrayal of President Salome Zurabishvili.
