A large-scale protest action began in Georgia last week, as Russian delegation joined the Orthodox Assembly session in Tbilisi. Russian MP from the Communist Party Sergei Gavrilov took the Speaker's seat and delivered a speech in Russian. This outraged the opposition MPs and made thousands of common citizens take it to the street. The protesters fought with the police, which replied, using tear gas and water cannons. Dozens of people, including 30 Georgian reporters, were injured on both sides of the conflict.
