The City Hall of the western Georgian city of Kutaisi on Wednesday said it would purchase a power generator for delivery to the Ukrainian city of Dnipro as aid to help power civilian infrastructure during the winter season amid the ongoing military conflict in the county. 

In its announcement, the Mayor's Office highlighted the series of humanitarian deliveries from Georgia to the county, and Kutaisi's own efforts in humanitarian deliveries. 

It said aid packages and products of primary necessity - as requested by Ukrainian authorities - had been purchased with the money collected from donations to a special account created for Kutaisi residents.

The City Hall itself donated ₾50,000 ($18,906) to the account. 

The nearly 400 Ukrainian nationals living in Kutaisi, a western hub city, have also regularly received support from the body "in various ways", it added.

The Georgian Government recently sent 25 high-power generators to Ukraine on a decree issued by Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili.

The generators, with a total value of ₾1.5 million (about $565 000), were purchased by the Georgian State Electrosystem, and designated to be used for powering hospitals, catering and other essential facilities working in the emergency mode in Ukraine.
