“Ukraine must win this war, and we must help her in this. Otherwise, this international order will collapse,” the ambassador said on November 30 at an event organized by the Free Russia public organization and the Lithuanian embassy.
Kaljurand also noted that the West has achieved a unity that “they have never seen before.”
“If Ukraine is defeated or the war ends with an agreement under which at least part of Ukraine remains occupied, this will serve as a signal to Russia that such behavior will go unpunished for it. This will complicate the situation for all of us, especially for Georgia and even for the Baltic countries,” the diplomat said.
“This is the biggest threat Georgia faces. Therefore, Georgia really needs to make a decision and stay on the right side of history,” she stressed.
The Ambassador also reacted to the rise in prices for energy and other goods in Europe due to the onset of winter and said:
“If you focus on what is happening in Ukraine, I think that the price of energy is secondary. We can pay this price in euros and dollars, but Ukrainians will have to pay with their lives. This is the difference,” the diplomat concluded.
