The US Senate called the adoption of the law "a black day for Georgian democracy."

The adoption of the Law on Foreign Agents by the Parliament of Georgia has cast a dark shadow over Georgian democracy. This is not just a law, but a threat to the very essence of our democratic values. This is stated in the statement of 11 Republican and Democratic senators of the US Senate.

"This is a black day for Georgian democracy. We are deeply disappointed by the Georgian Parliament's adoption of the Russian bill on foreign agents. That vote was made against the will of hundreds of thousands of Georgians, who continue to peacefully protest against the legislation, which will not only be used to limit freedom of speech but will also hinder the development of democracy in Georgia," the statement said.
