Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (Rondeli Foundation), in partnership with the Embassy of Ukraine in Georgia and with support of the Embassy of Poland in Georgia, organized a discussion to mark one year after the start of Russia’s brutal and unprovoked full-scale war of aggression against Ukraine.
The GFSIS discussion was dedicated to assessing the one-year outcomes of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, its regional and global implications, and prospects for ending the war according to President Zelensky’s Peace Formula. Military, political, economic, and other outcomes of Russia’s full-scale war of aggression against Ukraine; conditions to end Russia-Ukraine War and achieve sustainable peace; actions of the West to help Ukraine and stop Russia’s flagrant violation of the UN Charter – these and other questions were addressed at the panel discussions by highranking foreign diplomats and experts.
The panels were moderated by Ekaterine Metreveli, President of GFSIS and Shota Utiashvili, Senior Fellow at GFSIS.
David Kereselidze, Director of Political Department, MFA of Georgia and Andriy Kasianov, Charge d’Affaires, Embassy of Ukraine to Georgia delivered welcome remarks.
