The Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, Shalva Papuashvili, spoke about peace, noting that there is a narrative circulating that suggests Georgia is facing a choice between peace or freedom.
“They put an equal sign on war and freedom, saying that if we choose freedom, that means we choose war. They offer us such false dilemmas. In fact, today there is a choice. Not a choice between peace and freedom, but a choice between peace and war. All countries that support Ukraine face this choice. NATO member countries also have this choice: They could all join the war today, but they instead choose peace. And that’s why Georgia, of course, chooses peace,” said the Speaker.
He went on to point out that Georgia does not have the security umbrella of NATO, nor does it have the protection of the European Union.
“We fought against Russia three times. The countries that fall under that umbrella, be it NATO or the European Union, have more opportunities than us, but even they don’t go to war, so the choice really is between peace and war. Like all other countries, we also choose peace,” Papuashvili said.
