Georgia will not send monitors to Ukraine for 2nd round of elections

Georgia will not send observers to Ukraine to monitor the second round of presidential elections, Georgian presidential press secretary Manana Manjgaladze said.

“The president of Georgia wishes the Ukrainian people success in electing a new president and says that Georgia did not intend to interfere in the presidential elections in Ukraine or support any candidate,” Manjgaladze said.

The Georgian president said the Georgian leadership would respect the Ukrainian people’s choice and was prepared to cooperate with any elected president so as to bring the Georgian-Ukrainian relationship to a new level, she said.

“As for Georgian monitors, the president says that, because of controversial responses to their presence, Georgia will not send its monitors to the second round of the presidential elections in Ukraine and is calling on Georgian citizens hired by international organizations as monitors to return home,” Manjgaladze said.
