“At this stage, we do not have any official information about the date when we will be able to resume working. Today, the meeting is appointed with Interior Minister and supposedly he will give us the specific answer. I still feel hopeful. At this stage, the club is sealed and no one is allowed inside. We are all stressed, especially the people who were supporting us. However, as I see, they have the motivation to fight and I suppose that after some time more and more people will join us and we will have more supporters then before”, stated Gelbakhiani.
