Russia’s current aggression is an aggression against our values. Each demolished house must be followed by yet another sanction. This barbaric approach to Ukraine is unacceptable, – Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said at a briefing with Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili.
Morawiecki noted that everything must be done to stop the Russian aggression.
“My visit today is in special conditions. This is unprecedented, groundless, unprovoked aggression against Ukraine, which is a friendly country of Georgia.
“This is the moment when we must remember the words of Lech Kaczyński, voiced on August 12, 2008. These words, unfortunately, were justified. He said that today it was Georgia, tomorrow it would be Ukraine, then the Baltic countries and maybe the time would also come for our country, Poland.
“A few days ago, we were in Ukraine with Jarosław Kaczyński. We loudly stated that we do not agree with Russia’s policy. We fully support the people of Ukraine, who are fighting not only for their own country, but also for Georgia and Poland.
“I want to say here, from the land of Georgia, that we, together with the Prime Minister of Georgia, must do everything possible to ensure that the values that are appreciated in both nations be justified and supported for Ukrainians. Russia’s current aggression is an aggression against our values that we, both nations, appreciate. We will do everything to stop this aggression. What can we do – sanctions, which were adopted by the European Commission, Poland is initiating sanctions, we want to deepen sanctions. Each demolished house must be followed by yet another sanction. This barbaric approach to Ukraine is unacceptable,” Morawiecki said.
PM Garibashvili noted at the joint press conference that he had “introduced to the Prime Minister of Poland the active political and humanitarian assistance that Georgia provides to Ukraine at all international, political levels.”
Garibashvili thanked the PM of Poland for the assistance provided during the evacuation of Georgian citizens and the transportation of humanitarian aid sent by Georgia to Ukraine.
“I introduced to the Prime Minister the active political and humanitarian assistance that Georgia is providing to Ukraine at all international, political levels, be it the UN resolution, in the OSCE format, in the EU format, or in the Council of Europe format – we everywhere supported or co-sponsored or co-organized these resolutions. We, of course, supported the launching of an investigation that should investigate the war crimes in Ukraine. Our position is absolutely clear and understandable. Of course, we are in solidarity. I would like to reiterate our strong support for Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the PM stated.
The meeting between the Prime Ministers of Georgia and Poland took place in Batumi.
