PM: Georgia condemns Russia’s full-scale military aggression against Ukraine

Georgia condemns Russia’s full-scale military aggression against Ukraine as a clear and blatant violation of fundamental principles and norms of the international law as well as the UN Charter, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili stated at the High-Level International Donors’ Conference for Ukraine in Poland.

Garibashvili noted that the outcome of the war in Ukraine would define the future architecture of European security and lay the ground for the new security framework for the region and beyond.

The PM stressed that the war in Ukraine has caused a major humanitarian crisis in the region and requires immediate action from the international community.

The Head of the Government pledged the Georgian government stands in full solidarity with the Ukrainian people and mobilized all the resources to alleviate the effects of the devastating war.

“We steadfastly stand with the international community in full solidarity with Ukraine and will continue supporting it politically and in a practical sense, both bilaterally and within multilateral formats. The contribution that has already been disbursed by Georgia is up to 7 million US Dollars and we continue providing assistance to more than 28,000 Ukrainians affected by war and currently living in Georgia. More than 500 tons of humanitarian cargo has been sent to Ukraine by air and by land,” the PM asserted.

Irakli Garibashvili also said that the Georgian government has been supportive to the displaced people from Ukraine through the provision of accommodation, essential items, clothing, food, vital medical services, and access to schools, and kindergartens free of charge.

“We continue supporting our brotherly nation with additional 7 million US Dollars by the end of 2022. In addition, our private sector, NGOs and individual citizens are also offering accommodation, food, clothing, and other assistance to the Ukrainian citizens, who live in Georgia. According to Ukraine’s National Post (Ukrposhta), Georgia is the first among 191 countries in supplying humanitarian aid to Ukraine. Once again, the unity of the international community in providing active support to Ukraine is a matter of urgency and necessity. I wish the Ukrainian people peace and prosperity!” Garibashvili said.
