President Petro Poroshenko said that Russia’s attack on Georgia in 2008 was a prologue to the Russian war against Ukraine. The head of state wrote on his page in Facebook.
“The fact that eight years ago he saw only the most perspicacious, today it is clear to everyone: Russia’s attack on Georgia was a prologue to the Russian war against Ukraine”, – wrote Poroshenko.
According to him, the policy of appeasement was bankrupt in 2008. Moreover, according to Poroshenko, it only fueled the appetites of the Kremlin.
“Joint efforts of the transatlantic community were still able to locate the predatory bear in its den. It was an enlightening history lesson, not learned in time,” said the President.
According to him, the ordeal reinforced the sense of solidarity and friendship between the Ukrainian and Georgian peoples.
“We, like no other, sincerely and consistently supported the restoration of the territorial integrity of Georgia. And it’s clear that will never recognize the Russian puppet regimes in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Georgia glory, and glory to Ukraine!” – summed up the head of the state.
In early July, at the NATO summit in Warsaw was approved a comprehensive plan of support for Ukraine.
Today, August 8, marks eight years since the beginning of the Russian-Georgian war when Moscow recognized the independence of two Georgian regions – Abkhazia and South Ossetia and sent troops into Georgia.
