August 7 marks fifteen years since the beginning of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Georgia. Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia of Georgia continue to suffer from Russian occupation.
Ukraine supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders.
The Kremlin's illegal attempt to forcefully change the borders of a sovereign state did not receive a proper response from the international community. After occupying a part of Georgia’s territory, Russia continued its aggressive policy by occupying the Crimean Peninsula and parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions in 2014, and launching a full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
We are convinced that it is possible to stop the aggressive policy of the Russian Federation through the joint efforts of the international community, full compliance with the sanctions against Russia and comprehensive support of the countries against which the Kremlin carries out aggression.
Russia must de-occupy Georgian and Ukrainian territories. Russian war criminals must bear the strictest responsibility.
