"Based on Georgia's bitter experience, we know how important the territorial integrity of the country is. That is why we have been watching the tense situation regarding Ukraine with great pain in our hearts. It should be noted that the events that took place yesterday and today already pose a serious threat of bloodshed, but there is still an opportunity to resolve the situation. It is also an opportunity to maintain world peace. We ask the Holy Trinity to grant peace to the people of Ukraine and to the whole world. May God of peace be with everyone, Amen,” the document says.
