Meanwhile, Nika Gvaramiya has noted that it is planned to maintain in full the salaries for the journalists who will join the "Mtavari Archi" TV Company, since the company has got sponsors.

"No excuses that a person has no money, he or she needs to repay loans and feed minor children, will not be accepted: those who stay at the 'Rustavi-2' will become an accomplice of invaders," Nika Gvaramiya said.
