Trying to balance the concerns of security, of course, is first and foremost, as well as trying to support those who are fleeing repression and war in Russia, US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan said when commenting on the influx of Russian citizens in Georgia.

According to her, it is up to the Government of Georgia to set the policy for this.

“This is a very complicated issue. And it really is up to the Government of Georgia to set the policy for this. You see that different countries are taking different measures based on their circumstances. It’s going to be up to the Georgian government to decide on the best way to address this, trying to balance the concerns of security, which is first and foremost, as well as trying to support those fleeing repression and war in Russia and Ukraine," said the Ambassador.
