The last dozen or so days and the successful counteroffensive of the Ukrainians have shown Russia’s weakness. Kobakhidze pointed out that senior Ukrainian officials talked about Georgia’s involvement in the war with Russia. The Georgian authorities do not support this idea. “People will explain whether they agree with the statements of Ukrainian politicians about the need to involve Georgia in the war, or with the position taken by the authorities of their country.” – added Kobakhidze.
Fyodor Venislavsky, adviser to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, called on Georgia to “take concrete steps to liberate Abkhazia and South Ossetia.” Earlier, the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Oleksiy Danilov, and advisers to the Chancellery of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolak and Oleksiy Arestovich, publicly addressed the government in Tbilisi.
According to the Ukrainian authorities, now is a good time to open a second front as Russia is devoting all its attention to the war in Ukraine. The Russo-Georgian war broke out in August 2008 when the troops Vladimir Putin attacked a country located in the South Caucasus, taking Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Kobakhidze is a politician ideologically close to the Kremlin. His idea of a possible referendum could be a trick on the nose Ukrainians. The mood in Georgia is anti-Russian, but declaring war on Russia is a serious matter that the inhabitants will most likely not decide to do.
