The Georgian legislative body is working on a new resolution on Ukraine amid the Kremlin’s military invasion of the country yesterday, Irakli Kadagishvili, the Chairman of the Committee on Procedural Issues and Rules, announced on Thursday.
Kadagishvili said “there should be no excuse” for Russia to be allowed to “spread its aggression” on Georgia as well, stressing out the extent of the crisis and calling it a “threat” to most of the continental Europe, including Georgia. Steps taken by Georgia must be agreed with its partners and be in accordance with the interests of the country, he added.
The Georgian parliament approved a resolution initiated by the ruling Georgian Dream party in support of Ukraine on February 1, in response to the Russian military buildup at the country's borders.
The document condemned "any military intention" aimed against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, and expressed solidarity with the Ukrainian people.
However, the ruling party and parliamentary opposition failed to agree on a common resolution text, and the draft was not supported by a majority of the opposition’s MPs, except members of European Socialists and Citizens parties.
