Georgian prime minister Irakli Garibashvili on Thursday vowed his government’s support for Ukraine during an address at the 77th session of the United Nations general assembly, stressing Russia’s violations of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, UN charter and international law.

War is waging again, not far from the doorstep of my country. Russia’s full-fledged war in Ukraine undermines Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, as well as the UN charter and fundamental principles of international law. Georgia stands with Ukraine”, Garibashvili said.

The head of the government also highlighted steps taken by the Georgian authorities to provide humanitarian and financial assistance to the country.

“Since the start of the war, our government has provided substantial humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, including the allocation of more than 1000 tons of humanitarian aid”, he told the assembly.

Georgia is providing financial assistance and accommodation to over 32 000 Ukrainians currently residing in our country. The Georgian education system has received more than 1500 Ukrainian students, many of whom receive general education in the Ukrainian language according to the standard Ukrainian curricula”, he continued.

Garibashvili also underlined his government’s political support for Ukraine amid the Russian invasion through “sponsoring, joining or supporting” almost 400 resolutions, statements, joint statements and other initiatives in its support at “all major international organisations and institutions”.
