The Deputy Prime Minister of Georgia responded harshly to Ukraine’s request.

Tbilisi does not intend to provide military assistance to Kyiv, Deputy Prime Minister Teya Tsulukiani said.

“The Georgian authorities will not allow the state of Georgia to be involved in a military confrontation. Therefore, we will not provide military assistance, of course, to any of the parties to the military conflict, especially since, as far as I know, we are talking about the transfer of such weapons that we have acquired but it’s just a detail,” she said.

The Deputy Prime Minister called it regrettable that attempts to involve Tbilisi in the conflict are still ongoing and added that her country has experienced many armed conflicts and it is the duty of the authorities to prevent this from happening again.

Earlier, Kyiv asked Tbilisi to return the Buk complexes transferred to it in 2008, but the Georgian authorities refused.
