The Estonia-Georgia Parliamentary Friendship Group expresses its support to the restoration of Georgia’s territorial integrity.
The Parliamentary Friendship Group notes in its statement that today marks the 15th anniversary of Russia’s invasion into the territory of independent Georgia. „Just like the people of Ukraine, the Georgian nation is also fully aware of how Russia’s aggression causes trouble, suffering, and destruction both to the civilian population and the country as a whole. The Georgian citizens in Abkhazia and South Ossetia have had to struggle with Russia’s occupation and its consequences for 15 years. Many have fallen victim to persecution or forced resettlement, regional communities have become impoverished and lost their livelihoods. In light of this, it is paramount that Russia adheres to the obligations it assumed under the 2008 ceasefire agreement and displays full respect for the sovereignty of the Georgian nation,“ the Parliamentary Friendship Group writes in its statement.
„Just like in the case of Ukraine for the past year and a half, we emphasise the importance of Estonia’s continuing support to Georgia in resisting Russia’s aggression, in view of enhancing all-round security and stability in Europe. We express our support to the Georgian people, who are striving to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of their country, and commemorate those who lost their lives or suffered injuries during the 2008 invasion by the Russian forces,“ declare the Chairman Lauri Laas and Deputy Chairman Vadim Belobrovtsev in the name of the Group.
Other members of the Parliamentary Friendship Group are Aleksei Jevgrafov, Maria Jufereva-Skuratovski, Andrei Korobeinik, Anastassia Kovalenko-Kõlvart, Liisa-Ly Pakosta, Juku-Kalle Raid, Mati Raidma, Pipi-Liis Siemann, Peeter Tali, Kadri Tali, Tarmo Tamm, Igor Taro, and Hendrik Johannes Terras. Parliamentary friendship groups help the MPs communicate with other national parliaments, carry out Estonia’s foreign policy, and promote our country around the world.
