Tbilisi, January 19 – Georgian deputy Gia Volsky said that Georgia cannot supply arms or military goods to Ukraine, because that would be tantamount to entering a conflict.
Earlier, the Ukrainian media circulated a statement by the Ukrainian chargé d’affaires to Georgia, Andrei Kasyanov, in which he stated that Kyiv had asked Tbilisi to return the Buk missile systems, which Ukraine had transferred to Georgia during the 2008 conflict. According to Kasyanov, the request also included Javelin systems Anti-tank guns transferred by Washington to Georgia.
“Our national interest is to support Ukraine, and our political position has not changed and is firm. Let humanitarian aid be important, but not military goods or other things. Part of Georgian territory is occupied, and there are dangers from the occupied country. To this day and tomorrow it will exist,” Volsky told reporters. It is impossible for Kasyanov, Danilov or other representatives of the Ukrainian leadership to demand the provision of those small resources that Georgia possesses.
According to him, Georgia joined many decisions in support of Ukraine, providing it with electric generators and many other goods.
The deputy added that “Georgia cannot supply Ukraine with weapons or military goods, because that would be tantamount to entering the war.”
Earlier, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said that Georgia would not join the multiple sanctions imposed by the West in response to Russia’s special operation in Ukraine. Soon Volodymyr Zelensky decided to recall the Ukrainian ambassador from Tbilisi.
