Ilia was murdered this day, but his legacy continued to live and today limitlessness of Georgia has been demonstrated once again, - Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Kvirikashvili addressed community gathered to commemorate anniversary of the murder of Ilia Chavchavadze in Saguramo.

Today the importance of the lesson is particularly large - as Vazha-Pshavela once noted - "If the murderers of Ilia could, they would have killed Georgia itself", but they failed to do so. They failed to kill Ilia and Georgia, since Ilia is as eternal as the Georgian nation. This murder awakened Georgian nation, redefined its development vector and reinforced morals of the Georgian people. Ilia sacrificed his life to achieve this goal. Whole of his life, work, writer's career and pubic activities served this particular purpose," - Giorgi Kvirikashvili noted.

"Sense of independence has not been brought to Georgians as vividly as Ilia Chavchavadze has and his words are particularly current today, when Georgia is facing novel challenges. Georgia faces new threats and challenges and Ilia has given us the best medicine to cope with these obstacles. As Ilia has once stated "We have to encourage each other by joining our efforts. Let us support each other and make love our middleman,"... No one has exceeded the greatness of these words. These words conveys vector of development of Georgia, greatness of the country and the formula of rescuing the Georgian gene. I cannot add anything to these words - the only thing I would like to say is that I pray to god to ensure that we deserve these words; I pray to god to ensure that each of our steps and each of our actions are dictated by our hearts. I congratulate you on the birthday of Saint Ilia Martali," - Prime Minister addressed the society

I am sorry that Bidzina Ivanisvhili presented another project for 2016 elections in which the potential partner of Georgian Dream is Patriots Alliance and not Republicans Party or Free Democrats – this statement was made by the Chairman of Parliament Davit Usupashvili.
