Embassy of United States in Georgia has published a statement regarding Rustavi 2 decision. the statement reads as follows:

"We have watched carefully the situation related to the July 18 ruling of the European Court of Human Rights on Rustavi 2. Freedom of speech and a media landscape representative of a plurality of views are foundations of democracy. We encourage the implementation of the Court’s ruling in a manner that is fair, apolitical, and allows for a multitude of opinions to be represented in the media. The United States remains committed to helping Georgia protect freedom of speech and preserve a diverse media landscape."
