Georgia Supported Ukraine at the “Summit of Democracy”

At the summit in Washington, the president of Georgia drew parallels between the peoples of Ukraine, Georgia and the progressive world in the struggle for democracy

On March 29-30, the second Summit of Democracy takes place in Washington. The leaders of 120 states, including Ukraine, are invited to participate.

Georgian president Salome Zurabishvili delivered a speech about her people's recent victory against the pro-Russian law and Ukraine's struggle against Russian occupation. Commenting on the courage and dedication with which the Georgians defended their national present and European present without Russian poison, Ms Zurabishvili noted: "The people have made progress by protesting on the streets of Tbilisi."

It is worth noting that Ukrainians support the people of Georgia, just as the people of Georgia sincerely support Ukraine.

In 2008, Russia attacked Georgia, annexed Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali/South Ossetia region and killed thousands of people. In 2014, Russia attacked Ukraine, annexed Crimea, occupied Donetsk and Luhansk, and killed thousands of people. In 2022, Russia launched a full-scale attack on Ukraine and increased the number of victims to a million.

"This is another reminder of the consequences of unfettered authoritarian regimes with ancient and longstanding imperialist ambitions. A reminder that democracies must be strong from within, that is, supported by a unified civil society and united in the international arena to protect the established principles of international law," president Zurabishvili.

Today Ukraine and Georgia are together on the way to the European Union. And together with the support of other states, we will defeat Russian aggression now and forever. Or at least for a long time.

It is worth noting that Hungary and Turkey were not invited to the Summit of Democracy.
