Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman arrived in Georgia on an official visit. At the airport, he was welcomed by Georgian Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze.
Groysman’s program is very busy. In addition to participating in the Silk Road Forum in Tbilisi, Groysman held talks with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili, President Giorgi Margvelashvili, and with the head of parliament Irakli Kobakhidze. He is scheduled to meet with Tbilisi's newly elected mayor Kakha Kaladze, Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria, and Culture Minister Mikheil Giorgradze.
All this testifies that the Georgian-Ukrainian relations at the level of ifficial contacts have entered an active phase after a certain freeze.
The freeze was caused by the fact that color revolutions were successfully carried out in both countries, as a result of which Russophobic puppets came to power, faced with a single political task - to complicate at any price the life of the Russian Federation as much as possible.
With the aspirations of both the Georgian and Ukrainian peoples, this political line coincided, so both friends, Viktor Yushchenko and Mikheil Saakashvili, lost their posts. Naturally, the West could not put up with this, and, having poured billions of dollars into the coup d'état in Ukraine, brought frankly fascist politicians of Bandera-type to power, compared to whom even Viktor Yushchenko could seem like a dove of peace.
Not only did the Georgian Dream manage to keep its positions in the country in the last five years, which ended the dictatorship of Saakashvili, but strengthened them. However, relations with the Ukrainian political elite, with which the Georgian political elite amicably run in the same harness, were rather cold and tense. It could not have been otherwise, while in Ukraine there was a large landing group of the "United National Movement" led by Mishiko Saakashvili himself with a bunch of retired officials who would bring Ukraine to heavenly prosperity, and raise the economy to sky-high heights, and a powerful detachment of the so-called Saakashvili "special forces", who had to carry out all these tasks with weapons in their hands.
In those years, the Ukrainian leadership tried not to notice Georgia, headed by the "Georgian Dream". For them there was only Georgia’s "UNM" and Mikheil Saakashvili. But, as the famous philosopher said: "Everything flows and nothing remains."
The activities of the Georgian "Varangians" came to a logical conclusion ... The ministers, thanks to which Georgia was in the grip of the most severe political and economic crisis, did the same with Ukraine, after which they safely left their posts; TV screen muggers began to tell the truth about provocations and murders on Maidan and Donbas, well, and Mishiko, like a parasite implanted in an alien organism, simply cannot help but try to fully devour it.
Another thing is that the organism, generated by the Maidan, does not cause special sympathy, but the process is quite natural, which was clearly characterized by F.M. Dostoevsky: "One reptile devours another bastard."
Since that moment, the relationship between the ruling elites has gone up sharply ...
Pavlo Klimkin and Petro Poroshenko himself arrived in Georgia, and now the Prime Minister of Ukraine did the same. Now, when the splinter seems to have been pulled out, it's time to remember that we are of the same blood.
Giorgi Kvirikashvili thanked Ukraine for the active support of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia.
"Unfortunately, our countries have similar problems and challenges. We firmly support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine in its internationally recognized borders; severely condemn the occupation and annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, the illegal and aggressive actions of the Russian Federation in the eastern regions of Ukraine. Illegal actions of Russia in Ukraine are a continuation of the aggression carried out in Georgia in August 2008 and as a result of which the regions of Georgia - Abkhazia and South Ossetia are occupied", Kvirikashvili stated.
The guest's speech, of course, was in the same key.
"I want to assure you that Ukraine is and will be Georgia’s reliable strategic partner. We support the territorial integrity of Georgia and will always do everything in our power to strengthen this support", Groysman said.
So why did the Ukrainian prime minister really come to Georgia?
One of the important tasks is the bilateral recognition of ID cards in order to facilitate mutual visits for the citizens of both countries. One of the priority areas of active cooperation between Georgia and Ukraine will be the development of cultural ties. The guest spoke a lot about the economic aspect of their relations, expressing the desire to increase the volume of bilateral trade twofold.
From the statement of the Georgian prime minister it became clear that the parties signed two memoranda concerning registration of land and development of the cadastral system, as well as quality control of medicines.
To be honest, the formal agenda is somewhat perplexing. Why should prime ministers discuss the issue of control of the quality of medicines? Neither Georgia nor Ukraine are giants of the pharmaceutical industry and this issue could be solved quite calmly by officials of a much lower rank.
The issue of land registration and cadastral system can also raise a question. As you know, in both countries the moratorium on the sale of land to foreigners is still in force. Today they are trying to lift this moratorium in Ukraine. Fertile land, Ukrainian black soil is by far the last unsold asset - the country's last national wealth. Even Viktor Yushchenko did not dare to lift this moratorium, however the Rothschild clan is interested in purchasing millions of hectares of land, and the Maidan government, of course, will do everything for the sake of its benefactors.
Whether the same thing awaits Georgia will eventually come to light ... However, the irreconcilable opposition in the person of the remnants of the United National Movement believes that all these issues are merely a formal cover for the main task - negotiations on the future fate of Mikheil Saakashvili. This was stated by one of the leaders of the UNM Nika Melia.
There is a certain logic to this statement. The funny thing of the situation is that both sides would gladly get rid of the restless Mishiko. Let's see who will be able to shove this "gift" to "a friend".
