Georgia notes the 115th anniversary of among one of the most awful occasions in the background of Georgia, the murder of Ilia Chavchavadze.
Georgian somebody, press agent, reporter, political leader, and also author, that played a crucial duty in the development of civil culture in Georgia in the 19th century, was eliminated on September 12, 1907.
The Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili, reacted to the occasion by keeping in mind: “It is hard to find another example in the whole world when one person dedicates so much personal effort of unimaginable proportions to building the future of his country. Ilia’s work in culture, politics, economy and every sphere of social life paved the very way for the country’s development that we are pursuing today.
The recognition of this enormous merit—and the glorification of Ilia Chavchavadze in 1987 under the leadership of His Holiness Catholicos-Patriarch of All-Georgia Ilia II—gave a powerful impetus to the national liberation movement, ultimately resulting in our country’s independence.
It is with the deepest gratitude that we once again honor today the man whom we deservedly call the Father of the Nation. Ilia Chavchavadze’s memory will live on forever in Georgia.”
