Staunton, Mar. 17 – Some governments around the world support sanctioning Russia for Putin’s war in Ukraine because their people are in lock step with them on this issue. Other governments sometimes act at variance with what their people want. One such case is the Republic of Georgia.
There senior officials have been divided as to whether the West should sanction Russia for Putin’s actions, with the prime minister declaring that Tbilisi would not join the sanctions regime while the president said that she favored the sanctions the West is putting in place against the Russian Federation.

Instead, they favor the imposition of sanctions and want their government to back Ukraine against Russian aggression (oc-media.org/features/datablog-georgians-want-their-government-to-support-ukraine/
