Exactly a year ago, the power of the Georgian Dream allowed Russian MPs into parliament and ceded the chair of the Georgian parliament to Communist Gavrilov, the violator of the occupation law. Exactly a year ago, this openly collaborative fact was appealed to the parliament by thousands of people, and the authorities defiantly punished these people to show Russia. A year ago, on June 20, their own government hunted civilians until the morning using bear bullets and tear gas. As a result, up to 240 people were injured and hundreds of demonstrators were arrested," the organizers said.

The action received this name in the name of the Russian State Duma deputy Sergei Gavrilov. Thousands of people took to the streets in protest a year ago, on June 20, against his arrival in Georgia.
