Parliament adopts GD-initiated draft resolution in support of Ukraine

Georgian Parliament adopted the resolution in support of Ukraine initiated by the ruling Georgian Dream (GD) party with 74 votes pro and none against with one hundred and seven lawmakers having registered for the voting.

Based on the resolution, Georgia condemns any intention that may be directed against the territorial integrity of the sovereign state, which poses a new threat not only to Ukraine but to regional peace and security.

“The Georgian Parliament declares that joining NATO is a sovereign right of the state and any attempt to restrict it by military-political means is categorically unacceptable. The Parliament believes that the prevention of war in Ukraine should be a major concern for the international community.

The Parliament expresses solidarity with friendly Ukrainian people, who could be severely harmed by any possible military escalation. In light of the foregoing, the Parliament calls on the Georgian Government to continue contributing to the prevention of war in Ukraine by diplomatic instruments and in close coordination with strategic partners,” reads the resolution.

Opposition politicians refused to sign the draft. They claimed that the text does not mention Russia as the aggressor country.
