The Georgian parliament has adopted a resolution initiated by the ruling Georgian Dream party in support of Ukraine amid the Russian military buildup at its border.
Seventy-four MPs supported the draft resolution out of a hundred-and-seven MPs registered for the voting.
The adopted resolution condemns "any military intention" aimed against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, thereby expressing solidarity with the Ukrainian people.
Preventing war in Ukraine should be the major concern of the international community, reads the document.
