Head of the Georgian opposition party Strategy Agmashenebeli Giorgi Vashadze has told Front News that if the west makes concessions over Ukraine with Russia it will further encourage Russian aggression.
“What is happening now in Ukraine will determine the next 15-20 years in terms of development (for the region). In this situation, the west must not think of a compromise as this will further encourage Russian aggression,” Vashadze said.
"It is important for me, as a citizen of Georgia, for the west to win the crisis in Ukraine, for Ukraine to win," Vashadze said.
He noted that the position of the current Georgian Dream government is ‘unclear’ for him.
The German chancellor is scheduled to visit Ukraine today and then Russia to somehow ease the current tension.
Russia has raised several demands to NATO and the US. Among the demands are the refusal of NATO to add Georgia and Ukraine as new members in the future.
