"We will identify all the officials involved in the deportation of Vano Nadiradze in violation of the law. All of you will be held accountable under this law. I personally promise you that. People like you are constantly on our radar, although not to take revenge but to strengthen our state, which will be even stronger without you. We are going to deport or execute no one. You will be serving your fair sentences in Ukrainian prisons. You'll be an example making it easier for us to raise a generation of Ukraine's true servants.
