On January 25, Deputy Foreign Minister Yevhen Perebyinis held a meeting with the Ambassador of Georgia to Ukraine George Zakarashvili.
Yevhen Perebyinis expressed gratitude to the Georgian side for providing energy equipment to Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Gostomel, as well as for the programs for health recovery of Ukrainian children in Georgia planned to be continued in 2023. He also thanked for the support of Ukrainian citizens who were forced to leave Ukraine due to the Russian full-scale military aggression.
The Deputy Minister expressed hope that Georgia will change its position and join those partners who provide Ukraine with weapons and military equipment and that Tbilisi will join all the sanctions introduced by the EU against the aggressor state.
In this context, he expressed concern about information about the possible resumption of direct flights between Georgia and Russia.
The Ambassador assured that Georgia has no intention to renew flights to the Russian Federation.
Yevhen Perebyinis also raised the issue about the deteriorating of health of the citizen of Ukraine Mikheil Saakashvili and asked the Georgian side to consider the possibility of transferring him for treatment to Ukraine or third countries.
The parties discussed other issues of bilateral cooperation, in particular the Georgia’s possible participation in the Peace Formula initiated by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and positively noted the intensification of the Ukrainian-Georgian interparliamentary dialogue.
