Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has highlighted Georgia's contribution to international support for Ukraine in the wake of Russia’s invasion by saying his Government was "doing its best" both in sending humanitarian aid to Ukraine and providing assistance to Ukrainians affected by the war and currently located in Georgia. 

Garibashvili highlighted Georgia ranked first among 191 countries with its supply of 550 tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine, in comments on the subject. 

We are doing our best - starting with healthcare and education for all those refugees from Ukraine who have come to Georgia and now live here […] I visited the Ukrainian-language classes created by the Minister of Education in Tbilisi - and he is now going to open a similar one in Batumi as well. We are doing our best with our budget," Garibashvili said.

Earlier today the Ministry of Internal Affairs released data showing an increased number of asylum seekers from Ukraine. While only three citizens of Ukraine had registered for the status in Georgia last year, in the first three months of 2022 a total of 126 Ukrainian nationals applied.
