We called on our colleagues to join the international sanctions against Russia, Ruslan Stefanchuk, Chairman of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada, said following a meeting with the Georgian parliamentary delegation.
As Stefanchuk noted, he had the opportunity to discuss with his Georgian counterpart the future course of the two countries, which “depends on European perspectives.”
“It is a special honor to host a parliamentary delegation from Georgia and Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili. I am glad that Mr. Shalva Papuashvili agreed to come here with a delegation. We had the opportunity to talk about a number of issues. I mean our bilateral relationship, which is so important.
I would like to thank our Georgian sisters and brothers who provided housing for thousands of Ukrainians who fled the war. I would like to thank my Georgian colleagues for their continued support in the international arena and for their support in the fight against Russia. Thanks to them for voting in our favor. We also called on our colleagues to join the international sanctions against Russia.
Rada Chairman paid respect to Georgian fighters, who were killed in Ukraine. He also highlighted the significance of European integration of Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova.
“I would like to pay my respects to the Georgian soldiers who died in the fight of Ukraine. I have the opportunity to discuss with my Georgian counterpart the future of the two countries after the victory over Russian aggression. This course, of course, depends on our aspirations and European perspectives. This is a unique opportunity for Ukraine, as well as for Georgia and Moldova,” said Stefanchuk.
