The recent allegations of the Ukrainian military intelligence that Moscow is negotiating with Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan on re-exporting products to circumvent international sanctions are “incorrect and unfounded,” the ruling Georgina Dream (GD) party MP Archil Talakvadze said on Monday.
Kyiv claims that Russia has plans to re-export its products to foreign markets under the names of Georgian, Azerbaijani and Armenian products, and that is why 200 new companies have been founded in the three countries amid ongoing hostilities in Ukraine.
"Georgia, our people, our government support Ukraine, the Ukrainian people, the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. This position will not change and the statements of individual representatives will not weaken Georgia 's support. This is our principled position," Talakvadze said.
Fellow ruling party MP Gia Volski suggested that “sanctioned business, goods, business activities, or any black holes which our so-called friends indicate do not exist and will not exist in Georgia.”
“If the Ukrainian intelligence has any evidence backing the allegations, let them present,” Volski said today.
Earlier Kyiv accused Tbilisi of aiding Russian smugglers which the Georgian authorities strongly condemned, damning the country to present evidence.
No evidence has been unveiled so far.
