"War causes casualties and destruction every day; it must end... Georgia firmly stands by the side of friendly Ukrainian people, which is manifested not only in words but also in strong political and humanitarian support. I wish peace, sovereignty and territorial integrity to the friendly Ukrainian people," stated Kobakhidze.

At the same time, recently, Kobakhidze claimed that Kyiv supposedly "wants to open a second front" in Georgia. Politicians from the leading Georgian Dream party have repeatedly made such statements in response to criticisms that Georgia is not decisively supporting Ukraine.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia emphasised in its statement that Russia, by attacking Ukraine, violated fundamental principles of international law and expressed unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. 

Georgia's President, Salome Zourabichvili, who is openly in conflict with the government and criticises it as anti-Western, published a separate video address to the Ukrainian people.

"Russia did not manage to destroy Ukraine and your resilience! Russia did not manage to divide Europe and to divide Europe from you! Solidarity is entire, support is there and success and victory are yours," she said.
