US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan said allegations of Ukrainian authorities should be dealt with “through appropriate channels.”

The remark came after the Ukrainian authorities said Russia is smuggling sanctioned products via Georgian territory.

Ambassador believes “the only one who is benefiting by this back and forth attacks is Russia.”`

“These are very serious allegations and they should be dealt with through appropriate channels, government-to-government, that is the right way to investigate something like this.

The government here has stated that it will not allow Georgia to be used to evade sanctions and of course, that is the most important thing. I have heard people saying no one can stop this war. Mr Putin started this war and he can stop this war today.

It is a brutal, uncivilised attack on our neighbouring sovereign nation. Sanctions are designed to pressure him to do that and unity and enforcement of sanctions are absolutely critical to keeping the pressure on. That is what makes sanctions such a powerful tool,” US Ambassador stated.
