Ukraine on anniversary of Russian invasion of Georgia: Russia saw no appropriate response from int’l community

That's according to MFA's press service, Ukrinform reports.

“Ukraine supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders,” the statement stressed, noting that Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali/South Ossetia regions still suffer under Russian occupation," diplomats stated.

The ministry underlined that the Kremlin's illegal attempt to alter the borders of a sovereign state by force received no appropriate response from the international community. Diplomats recall that after occupying part of the territory of Georgia, Russia continued its aggressive policy and, occupying the Crimean Peninsula and parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in 2014, launched 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 thanks to the joint efforts of the international community, clear compliance with the sanctions regimes against Russia and comprehensive support for the countries against which the Kremlin pursues its aggression,” the statement notes.

Russia must de-occupy parts of the territories of Georgia and Ukraine, and Russian war criminals must bear the strictest responsibility, diplomats stressed.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov has called on the West to react to aggression in time.

“The civilized world, I think, has already learned the lessons of 2008 - Georgia; learned the lessons of February 2014 - Ukraine; and learned the lessons of the summer of 2014 when the Russian regime killed 298 innocent people by shooting down a civilian plane flight MH17. They (Russia – ed.) did not bear any responsibility for that. And everyone must be held accountable for everything. Evil must be punished,” Danilov stressed in a recent interview.
