The For Georgia opposition party founded by former PM Giorgi Gakharia earlier this year has called on the state legislature to adopt the Ukraine Support Act amid high tension at Ukraine’s borders due to the amassing of Russian troops. 

For Georgia party member Mikheil Daushvili stated at the parliament’s plenary session today that current tension in Ukraine is also a threat to Georgia and to regional security. 

MP Daushvili said that Georgia should express its ‘full support’ for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, its Euro-Atlantic aspirations and ‘strongly condemn’ Russia’s ‘aggressive and provocative actions’ against Ukraine in the support act.

The For Georgia would also encourage the government to ensure political, technical and other support for Ukraine if required and ‘actively participate’ in all international formats held by the UN, OSCE, EU or influential international organizations dedicated on the issue of Ukraine.
