Deputies of the party For Georgia withdrew the draft resolution on Ukraine.
As MP Mikheil Daushvili stated at the sitting of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the procedure for withdrawing the draft resolution will start today.
“Today’s threat is not only the challenge of Ukraine but the challenge of Georgia too, which needs an adequate response. We understand that there is no political resource today and no political readiness to talk about military-technical support for Ukraine, but it is necessary for Georgia to express full political support for the benefit of the Ukrainian people. Therefore, we initiated a relevant resolution in December last year aimed at supporting Ukraine against the threats posed by the Russian Federation. It is unfortunate that the “Dream” offered us a draft of its own resolution, where it did not dare to name the aggressor and occupant. With this action, the ruling party harms the state interests of our country, as Russia also threatens Georgia. Support for Ukraine is a non-partisan issue and it is not appropriate for us to discuss two draft resolutions in Parliament today. Therefore, we are withdrawing our resolution and we hope that the “Dream” will have the courage to call the occupier the occupier and to provide Ukraine with appropriate political support,” Daushvili said.
For the record, the draft resolution prepared by the members of the party For Georgia was registered in the Parliament on December 21. The resolution affirms that Georgia supports Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity and condemns the actions of the Russian Federation, which are directed against the Ukrainian people and pose a direct and immediate threat to the sovereignty of Ukraine and the security of the wider Black Sea region.
