Earlier, the media reported that a plane was to depart from Ukraine to take Georgian volunteers, but it did not receive the relevant permit and the flight did not take place.
Davit Katsarava, the leader of the anti-occupation movement, stated that the Georgian government did not allow a plane to take Georgian volunteers to Ukraine.
“I just heard that our government has blocked the entry of a Ukrainian plane which is supposed to take volunteers to Ukraine. This is shameful behavior. It is a treacherous and collaborationist decision of the government,” Katsarava said.
Georgian volunteers wishing to help Ukraine fight against the Russian invasion claim that they will still manage to fly to Ukraine by using alternative means.
Up to 30 volunteers want to fly to Ukraine. In addition, they collected humanitarian cargo for the country, which they plan to take with this aircraft.
