“We should openly say No to the Russian occupation and violation of the international law norms, do the best to return the countries to the international order,” said Maka Botchorishvili, Chair of the Georgian parliamentary European Integration Committee, addressing the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (OSCE PA) meeting in Yerevan, Armenia.
According to Maka Botchorishvili, peace and security is significant for the region.
“A Georgian citizen was shot dead by the Russian occupying forces in the Tskhinvali region two weeks ago. This is yet another reminder of what the occupation is. Georgia has experienced Russian aggression and painful consequences of the war for many years.
Russian soldiers are still present on our territories that is neither legal nor justified. Hundreds of thousand people are displaced and their rights violated. Georgian citizens are unlawfully detained, abducted and killed.
It is important to remember that we we see in Ukraine is the continuation of the activities, which Russia has used in Georgia for the last 30 years.
Russia’s ambitions pose a threat to our common security. That is why we should openly say No to the Russian occupation and violation of the international law norms. We should do our best to return the countries to the international order,” she said.
