TBILISI, DFWatch–Georgian health minister Davit Sergeenko will go to Ukraine on Wednesday in order to learn what kind of assistance Ukraine needs and how Georgia can help.
After a government session on Tuesday, he said that Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili has instructed the government to help Ukraine as much as possible.
“It will be good if we provide humanitarian help to our Ukrainian friends. Give them maximal support and assistance,” the PM told the government.
Sergeenko said he has spoken with his Ukrainian colleague and agreed that several specialists will come with him to Ukraine and assess needs.
“We will arrive early in the morning and will start to work on that,” he said, adding that he will be there on Wednesday.
The minister hasn’t specified what kind of assistance Georgia will provide, but a few days ago, the Ministry of Health said in a statement that the minister once again offers Ukraine’s Health Ministry assistance due to recent developments.
He then proposed sending a group of doctors, medicines or take care of the health of those who were injured in the fighting. If needed, Georgia is willing to receive patients from Ukraine and provide them with treatment in Georgia.
