Ivanishvili has failed to deliver on the only promise which was easy to keep: to jail us for a really long time, leader of the Victorious Georgia party Okruashvili said, adding that his and Ugulava's imprisonment, as well as the release, is a political decision.
In Mr. Okruashvili's words, now Giorgi Rurua has to be freed for the agreement to be deemed performed.
Okruashvili thanked the U.S. and European Union Ambassadors for their contribution to freeing the prisoners.
President Zurabishvili pardoned Gigi Ugulava and Irakli Okruashvili today.
