Earlier, the Georgian television company Imedi published the results of a survey conducted by Gorbi.
He showed that 70 percent of citizens agree with the decision of the country's authorities, who did not want to join the sanctions against Russia.
“Principles are more important than profit. What is important to you? – Podolyak wrote in social networks, referring to the example minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili.
In turn, the Georgian government stated that support for anti-Russian sanctions by Tbilisi would not cause serious harm to Russia, but at the same time would mean powerful a blow to the economy and population of Georgia.
It also became known today that the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany, Andriy Melnyk, criticized Berlin for trade with Russia. Previously, data were cited, according to which in the first quarter of this year, Germany paid 15.8 billion euros for Russian energy resources.
“Do you call this solidarity with Ukraine? Or is business above all? – he wrote in social networks.
Meanwhile, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky criticized German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who, in his opinion, is trying to balance between Kyiv and Moscow.
