Ukrainian MPs visit Georgia

A delegation of members of the Nasha Ukraina Ukrainian parliamentary faction is paying an official visit to Georgia. The Ukrainian MPs have so far met with Georgian Vice Speaker Mikheil Machavariani. Delivering speeches to Georgian MPs and the media afterwards, they spoke in Ukrainian, not Russian, as a protest against the Russian aggression.

During the three-day visit, the Ukrainian parliamentarians will meet with the Georgian President and Patriarch Ilia. The delegation will also visit regions damaged by the Russian aggression, where they plan to meet members of the local population.
