When we talk about solidarity with Ukraine, we emphasize that Georgia is different from all other countries in that we know what war with Russia means, - Speaker of the Parliament Shalva Papuashvili said during his visit to Brussels.
As the Speaker of the Parliament noted, despite the fact that two regions of Georgia are occupied by Russia and the country is not protected by the umbrella of the European Union and NATO, Georgia is fully in solidarity with Ukraine.
"We still have these challenges today, and unlike other countries, especially NATO member countries, we stand in solidarity with Ukraine without being protected by either NATO's nuclear umbrella or the EU's economic solidarity umbrella. At the same time, Russia occupies two of our regions. Despite these challenges, we are in full solidarity with Ukraine in this environment, and therefore it is important for them to look at the steps taken by Georgia in this light, to see that we are responsible to our citizens, so that the security environment does not deteriorate and we do not risk a military confrontation with Russia", - Shalva Papuashvili said.
