The authorities of Ukraine will help Georgia to become a member of the EU as much as possible, the people’s deputy noted.
David Arakhamia, head of the Servant of the People faction, accused Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili of spreading fake news.
He said this in an appeal posted on Telegram regarding accusations that Arakhamia allegedly blocked granting Georgia the status of a candidate for EU membership.
“Quite recently, at a PACE meeting, he (Garibashvili – UNIAN) stated that Arakhamia allegedly traveled to Europe and the United States and tried to take Georgia as a candidate for EU membership. Firstly, Arakhamia was not in Europe. Secondly, in The United States Arakhamia was specifically engaged in substantiating the concept that Mr. Ivanishvili (ex-Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili – UNIAN) is a pro-Russian oligarch who has a puppet government and, in fact, sets up the ordinary Georgian people who want to go to Europe,” he said.

The head of the Servant of the People faction said that the Ukrainian authorities would “help Georgia as much as possible become a member of the European Union.”
“And please do not pay attention to the outright stuffing and fakes of the Georgian government, in particular the Prime Minister, who is spreading false information simply on the order of one oligarch,” Arakhamia said.
He stressed that the people of Georgia support Ukraine and their representatives are fighting on the side of our country.
Recall that on February 28, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed an application for Ukraine’s membership in the EU.
Moldova and Georgia also wanted to get the status of candidates for joining the European Union.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on June 17 that the EC recommended to the European Council grant our country the status of a candidate for EU membership.
The decision of the European Council on granting the Ukrainian state the status of a candidate for membership in the association of states is expected on June 23-24.
