Kelly Degnan, US Ambassador to Georgia, claims that it’s more important than ever right now that Georgia and Ukraine stand together against Russia’s aggression.
The diplomat’s statement has been released by the US Embassy in Georgia.
“It’s more important than ever right now that Georgia and Ukraine stand together against Russia’s aggression. Both countries know what it feels like to be occupied by Russia and any division between Georgia and Ukraine now only serves Russia’s purposes,” stated the Ambassador.
The remarks come days after the Chargé d’Affaires of Ukraine, Andrii Kasianov, said:
“Today, when Russia is waging a war on the peaceful land of Ukraine, we had expectations that Georgia would provide more effective assistance to Ukraine. Unfortunately, this is not happening and does not meet our expectations and understanding of what a strategic partnership entails.”
This above was later responded to by Georgian Dream chairman Irakli Kobakhidze, saying that “the Ukrainian authorities have expressed a desire for Georgia to become the second front, which Kasianov once again repeated.”
