Opposition demonstrators run away as police fired a volley of tear gas against them at Georgian Parliament during a protest in Tbilisi, Georgia, June 21, 2019.
Riot police in Georgia fired rubber bullets and tear gas Thursday at demonstrators who tried to storm parliament, furious that a Russian-speaking lawmaker from Moscow addressed lawmakers from the speaker’s chair.
Clashes between police and protesters continued into the evening, well past the end of the parliamentary session.
An adviser to Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze said 39 policemen and 30 demonstrators were taken to the hospital.
Earlier, about 10,000 demonstrators broke through police barriers and made their way into the parliament building’s courtyard. They demanded Speaker Irakli Kobakhidze and several senior Cabinet members resign.
