We should stand with people, who fight today, but we should take steps, which will be effective. In no case, we should admit our country’s involvement in the war, said Giorgi Gakharia, leader of For Georgia party.
According to Gakharia, the decision of the Parliament Speaker not to visit Bucha at the invitation of the Speaker of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada “is a behavior that has no moral justification today and will never have in the future.”
“It is extremely difficult to comment on this, especially for Georgian citizens. We must understand one thing very well and I will repeat again that this is not pragmatism, this is a behavior that has no moral justification today and will never have in the future. Once again I want to tell all of us that we must live and act today in such a way to always remember the people who stood here and sacrificed their lives for freedom and dignity. Pragmatism alone will lead us to nowhere.
The Government of Georgia, every Georgian citizen must always, morally, wherever we can, stand by the people who are fighting today. We all need to understand that we must take steps that will be effective and in no case should we allow anything that will really drag our country into a war. What the Georgian Government is doing to Ukraine today is a policy of self-preservation. This is not a pragmatic policy, but a policy of self-preservation, which is conditioned and determined by one thing – to maintain power, not to think about people, country, freedom or dignity,” Gakharia said.
