Georgia strongly condemns Russia’s “recognition” of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions, repeating the scenario that led to the occupation of 20% of our territory, - President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili has tweeted.

“Georgia strongly condemns Russia’s “recognition” of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions, repeating the scenario that led to the occupation of 20% of our territory. Georgia stands by you President Zelensky and in support of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and peace”, she said.

The statement came hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin recognised breakaway rebel regions in Ukraine's east as independent states, effectively ending peace talks there.
