MP Mikheil Daushvili, a member of the Party for Georgia, called on the Georgian Parliament to adopt an act in support of Ukraine. As he stated at the plenary session of the autumn session of the Parliament, what is happening today in our region, especially with regard to Ukraine, is very grave and dangerous not only for Ukraine but also for Georgia.
According to the MP, with the same support act, the Georgian Parliament should call on the European Union and NATO to realize the growing geopolitical risks posed by the Russian Federation and work on the immediate development of practical steps for the integration of Georgia and Ukraine in these organizations.
“In fact, the recent hostile steps taken by the Russian Federation against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including the mobilization of combat units along the Ukrainian border, the deployment of heavy equipment, the planning of provocative military maneuvers in the Sea of Azov, direct and covert large-scale military aggression. As the blackmail of the international community and the civilized world over Georgia’s sovereign decision to join NATO, all this is a great threat not only to Ukraine, but also to Georgia, the region and the whole of European security.
“Therefore, we call on all, each MP, for the Parliament of Georgia to adopt the Act in Support of Ukraine with the following content: We express our full support for the friendly, allied, freedom-loving Ukrainian people, the European and Euro-Atlantic choice, Provocative actions against sovereign Ukraine and planned military aggression contrary to the principles of international law, we urge the Georgian government to continue consultations with the Ukrainian authorities and, if necessary, to provide effective political, technical and other support and assistance. The Government of Georgia, in support of official Kiev, to take an active part in the activities of Ukraine under the auspices of the United Nations, the OSCE, the European Union and other international organizations. All actions against statehood. We call on the international community, in particular the United States, the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, to take effective political, economic and diplomatic measures to assist the peaceful and freedom-loving citizens of Ukraine, to protect Ukraine from military aggression,” Said Daushvili.
Tensions flared in recent weeks between the two countries. Tens of thousands of troops are believed to be stationed at Ukraine’s eastern borders near Donbas, the region at the center of the crisis. US intelligence suggests Russia plans to invade the country. A charge is denied by the Russian government.
G7 officials on Sunday told Russia to de-escalate the situation in Ukraine, warning of “massive consequences” and economic sanctions should it continue.
President Vladimir Putin, quoted by a state-run news agency on Thursday, said events in Donbas “resemble genocide.”
