KYIV, Ukraine, Aug. 13 /CNW/ -- Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko responded
again to the Georgian crisis on Wednesday, stating, "We stand in solidarity
with the democratically-elected leadership of Georgia. Georgia's sovereignty
and territorial integrity must be respected." Earlier on Tuesday, Tymoshenko
sent Vice Prime Minister Hryhoriy Nemyria as a Special Envoy to Tbilisi.
"Actions speak louder than words," said Nemyria from Tbilisi, "so it is
important to be on the ground, lending our first-hand support to the
government of Georgia. This crisis has clear implications for regional
security, and of course, for Ukraine." Nemyria, responsible for European and
International Integration, explained, "This crisis makes crystal clear that
the security vacuums that have existed in the post-Soviet space remain
dangerous. Because it is the largest country in the region after Russia, and
because it shares such a long border with the European Union, Ukraine remains
at risk in this type of vacuum." While in Georgia, Nemyria was scheduled to
meet with Georgian officials, as well as other international envoys that had
arrived in Tbilisi.
