President Zurabishvili said that “those aggressive actions and threats, cyber-attacks, excessive increase of military forces on the border with Ukraine or the intensification of forces on the Black Sea, are signs of the extent to which Russian policy has turned to provocation.”
“Aggressive actions, threats, be it cyberattacks or a direct increase in military forces on the Ukrainian border, the activation of military forces on the Black Sea, all shows how provocative Russia’s current policy is, to which the whole European, Western world responds with negotiations. Efforts are being made to resolve the situation and de-escalate this tense situation. However, de-escalation, as well as peace talks, requires the readiness of both sides,” the President said.
