1. Dear Foreign Minister Lavrov, thanks so much for noting of my recent visit to #Georgia. I certainly don't oppose amicable relations between neighbors, but when your country occupies 20% of Georgian territory, is that really amicable? <cont'd> tass.com/world/1065468
2. I've noticed your country has been moving the occupation line deeper & deeper into Georgian territory, depriving #Georgians of access to their farms and livelihood. Is that how you normalize relations? (NB: I see you're trying this in #Ukraine too).

3. Also, I read that in February your deputy, Mr. Karasin, threatened Georgia with an ultimatum stipulating it either abandon Euro-Atlantic integration or "unpleasant surprises" await. Is that standard diplomatic language for normalizing relations?

4. Maybe you can also explain your decision to halt tourism from Russia to Georgia. Is that done out of pure friendship, or is it perhaps to pressure Georgia to obey Mr. Karasin's ultimatum?
5. Dear Minister, you see I have this nagging suspicion your normalization agenda is really about preventing Georgia from pursuing Euro-Atlantic integration. I get the feeling you'd prefer if it remained in your "sphere of interests." Please correct me if I'm wrong. Many thanks.
