According to the media, Zurabishvili said that Europe is a space where people's free opinion is of great importance.

"So many people came, and so many people made their voices heard in Europe. Europe is the space where people matter most, where their free opinion matters most. I very much hope that this free opinion will be taken into account and we will be able to celebrate once again after December 15, and then prepare for the next year, which will be no less important," the President said.

Georgia's accession to the EU

Last month, Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili said that she believed that Georgia, Ukraine, and Moldova would become EU members at the same time.

Shortly before that, the European Commission released a report on the progress of Ukraine and several other countries on their way to joining the European Union.

In the report, the agency recommended starting negotiations on the accession of Ukraine and Moldova. Concerning Georgia, it was stated that the country would be granted candidate status "on the understanding" that Tbilisi would fulfill the conditions.
