Georgia is “very much in solidarity” with Ukraine, Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili told Imedi TV on Friday, adding the country had offered assistance to Ukraine starting with the “very first day” of the Russian invasion.

In his comments, Darchiashvili pointed to Georgia’s position “among the leading countries” that have been offering support to Ukraine.

"Together with our partners, we are trying our best to support Ukraine in the form of [international] resolutions or statements,” the Government official told the channel.

“On the other hand, it is also important to provide humanitarian aid - and it has been implemented not only at the Governmental level, but also as a common public process, because in the regions, [with the involvement of] our self-governments, the whole of Georgia participated unanimously in this process,” the Minister said.

Darchiashvili also noted Prime Minister  Irakli Garibasvhili’s participation in the International Donors’ Conference for Ukraine in Poland last week, where an event was held to mobilise international resources for humanitarian assistance to Ukraine.
