A Georgian parliamentary delegation refused an invitation to visit Kyiv on the anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine — Feb. 24, U.S.-funded news outlet Ekho Kavkaza reported on Feb. 20.

The report was subsequently confirmed by a member of the ruling Georgian Dream party, Irakli Zarkua.

“When high-ranking officials of Ukraine call on our state to open a second front, when the imprisoned Saakashvili (former Georgian President) is called a political prisoner, while he has many serious charges, – I think this leaves no room for diplomatic relations,” Zarkua said.

At the same time, he added that the Georgian authorities “support the Ukrainian people”, and they do “everything they can on all levels”, while many strong countries, including European ones, “didn’t dare to do what Georgia did against Russia.”
