“During the last several days, I have had intensive and friendly communication with the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Ruslan Stefanchuk. The Ukrainian people and its government protect their homeland and their future with exemplary heroic boldness. My colleague reiterated his desire to host me in Ukraine to personally share the human tragedies and the results of the destruction caused by the Russian aggression,” reads a statement from Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili.
He noted that they are planning to hold a more extensive conversation regarding the ongoing Russian aggression in Ukraine and the European future of their countries.
“We will discuss Georgia-Ukraine relations and our coordination needs in order to avoid the misunderstandings like those recently seen, and to further strengthen historically brotherly bonds between our countries and nations. Our communication, as well as his yesterday’s live interview on “Imedi TV”, have convinced me that there is room to solve every misunderstanding. Taking this into consideration, I had a discussion with all other party leaders and all of us agreed that my visit to Ukraine might play an important role in solving these issues.
“I have already had communication with my colleague and confirmed my readiness to visit Ukraine. Today we will discuss the details of this visit. I would like to reiterate that supporting Ukraine and the Ukrainian people is our moral and historic duty, and we will honor and fulfill this duty,” reads the statement.
