the stage," businessman Lasha Papashvili told Commersant. Papashvili hails

Hundreds of thousands of square meters are uncultivated, it is desirable to involve all means be it the army or the police in a bid not to leave a single inch of uncultivated land in the country. This is a priority.
As for the benefits for utilities, I do not take the criticism of the state seriously, we must all work together to save the country, we must make life easier for any citizen. We must welcome the government’s decision and support it. Now it’s not time for critics, ” Lasha Papashvili explains.
