Georgia will not provide military assistance to Ukraine, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said.
"As for military assistance, we have clearly said we will not do it, we will not get involved in this war. This is our clear position. As Prime Minister, I am responsible to the people," he said.
According to him, official representatives of the Ukrainian authorities, including the secretary of the Security Council, have publicly stated that they want to open a second front in Georgia. He said that Tbilisi had information about plans to involve Georgia in the war, but that "much could not be disclosed.
"I will only tell you the main thing that the official representatives of the Ukrainian authorities, including the Secretary of the Security Council, have publicly stated that they want to open a second front in Georgia so that not only Ukrainian women and children are killed, but also Georgians are killed. This front and this war should move to Georgia.
This was an official statement. In addition, we have heard many similar statements and have information that, unfortunately, cannot be publicly disclosed.
But thank God, the ruling party in the country today is the Georgian Dream and we decided that for us the interests of our people and country come first. We respect all countries, we respect all nations, but most of all we love our country and we will always protect the interests of our country," said Garibashvili.
