PM Shmyhal: Ukraine–Georgia trade turnover grows by 30%.

The 30% growth of Ukraine–Georgia trade turnover over the past six months testifies to friendly relations.

"The trade turnover between Ukraine and Georgia grew by almost 30% over the first half of 2021, clearly testifying to friendly relations between our countries," Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal posted on Twitter.

He also expressed gratitude to Georgian Parliament Speaker Kakha Kuchava for his visit to Ukraine. Shmyhal expressed confidence that the strategic cooperation between Ukraine and Georgia would be actively developed further.

As reported, events dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Babyn Yar tragedy took place in the territory of the National Historical and Memorial Preserve Babyn Yar on October 6. The memorial events were attended by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Israel Isaac Herzog, President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal, Speaker of the Parliament of Georgia Kakha Kuchava, Speaker of the Riksdag of Sweden Andreas Norlén, Marshal of the Senate of Poland Tomasz Grodzki, foreign delegations.

The visit of the Georgian Parliament Speaker takes place against the background of the arrest in Georgia of Mikheil Saakashvili, the chairman of the Executive Committee of the National Reform Council of Ukraine, former president of Georgia.

As reported, on Friday morning, October 1, Saakashvili posted a video on Facebook, in which he said that he was in Batumi.

In the evening of the same day, Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili announced that Mikheil Saakashvili had been detained 1. In turn, the former president went on a hunger strike, saying he considered himself a political prisoner.

Mikheil Saakashvili was the president of Georgia in 2008-2013. After losing the 2013 election, he left the country. Several criminal cases were instituted against him in his homeland, within some of which he was sentenced to imprisonment in absentia.

In 2015, Saakashvili was deprived of Georgian citizenship and has been a citizen of Ukraine for almost six years. He currently heads the Executive Committee of the National Reform Council of Ukraine.
