Salome Zurabishvili entered the hall of the Parliament, where she gave her annual report, together with the Charge d'Affaires of the Ambassador of Ukraine.

This fact caused the dissatisfaction of the chairman of the Georgian Dream faction, Mamuka Mdinaradze.

Before the president's speech, he asked for a speech and said, “There has been some embarrassment about the mission representative, with whom I'm sorry, I want to show solidarity and respect. But when we do not see the institute's respect, it's bad.”

Later, in his speech, Mdinaradze clarified his previous statement:

“I had a somewhat reprimanding tone about the procedure, saying to the media that careless, the word is the main thing - to carelessly bring a respected Ukrainian representative into the courtroom, carelessly write a letter to the Georgian parliament and I think it is disrespectful to the institute. Sorry, you know my attitude, it should definitely be mentioned.

"This word of 'negligence' has been omitted by some members of the media, and it is as if we have complained that you entered the Georgian parliament with a representative of Ukraine. They are doing it now that you are calling for unity,” Mdinaradze said.

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, recalled the Ambassador from Georgia on March 1. He cited Georgia's ‘immoral position’ in preventing Georgian volunteers from traveling to Ukraine and joining sanctions as the reason.
