Ukrainian government calls on the official Tbilisi “to distance itself publicly from the decision of the Russian Federation, whose leadership is violating international law and perpetrating war crimes in Ukraine.”
According to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s statement, “the conduct of business with Russian companies provides Russia with additional resources to continue its atrocious war on Ukraine, and the profit thus earned is soaked in the blood of the murdered Ukrainian citizens.”
“Ukraine has noted the information regarding the cancellation of part of the Russian Federation’s trade sanctions against Georgia.
It is underscored that the Russian Federation approved this decision against the backdrop of the Georgian authorities’ disinclination to support the new sanctions of the European Union against Russia.
We believe the promotion of trade relations with Russia, whose armed forces are attacking peaceful Ukrainian cities with missiles and bombs, killing innocent civilians, including children, to be unacceptable in the strongest terms.
Due to the 2008 Russian armed aggression against Georgia, the Georgian people, unfortunately, are well aware of the horrors of war that Ukrainians are forced to go through now. At the same time, it appears that the Georgian authorities must have forgotten all that and are now trying to seize the moment to cater for their own interests,” the Ministry stated.
