Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili announced he is ready to visit Ukraine, making an apparent u-turn on his previous rejection of Verkhovna Rada Chair Ruslan Stefanchuk’s invitation to the embattled country.
In a Facebook post, Speaker Papuashvili said that over the past several days he had had “an intensive and friendly communication” with a Ukrainian colleague.
In the talks, the Rada Chair “reiterated his desire to host me in Ukraine to personally share human tragedies and the results of destruction caused by the Russian aggression,” Speaker Papuashvili noted.
The Georgian Parliamentary chairperson underscored that later on April 13, he would have a more extensive talk with the Ukrainian counterpart about “the ongoing Russian aggression in Ukraine and the European future of our countries.”
“We will discuss Georgia-Ukraine relations and our coordination needs in order to avoid the misunderstandings similar to those that have recently taken place, and to further strengthen historically brotherly bonds between our countries and nations,” Speaker Papuashvili added.
