Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on Friday told the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly that his country felt the pain and hardship that Ukraine was currently facing amid the ongoing war and noted Georgia stood in “full solidarity” with the Ukrainian people.

As we strive for peace, prosperity, progress, and sustainability for all, it is disheartening to witness aggression against a UN member state. The war in Ukraine reawakens the trauma of the 2008 war in Georgia”, Garibashvili said in his address.

The PM said the Georgian Government had sponsored, joined and supported more than 500 resolutions, statements, joint statements and other initiatives by major international organisations and institutions to support Ukraine and the Ukrainian people.

The Government has been providing substantial humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and its people since the beginning of the war, both in the country and to those currently residing in Georgia, he emphasised.

Georgian schools have welcomed more than 2,200 Ukrainian students, “ensuring that most of them receive education in the Ukrainian language while following the official Ukrainian curriculum”, Garibashvili added.
