During his official visit to Georgia Ukrainian Defense Minister General of the Army of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak met with the President of the country Mr. Giorgi Margvelashvili.

“I am happy to welcome the true friends of Georgia. Our countries have always been good partners and reliable friends. I am pleased that our defense departments maintain good relationship and fruitful cooperation. All Georgian people support and root for Ukraine,” Mr. Giorgi Margvelashvili said.

Stepan Poltorak informed the President of Georgia on the situation in Eastern Ukraine and on the progress of reforms in the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.

“I am honored to be in Georgia and I want to thank you, as the President of the country, because Georgian people, our brothers, are together with Ukrainians in hard times. Now we go through the difficult path of reforms, while our Armed Forces still engage in combat in the East. We have valuable experience of reforms in the Georgian Defense Ministry. We reform the system of training NCOs, the area in which Georgia has made a real breakthrough. We will use this experience during the formation of Ukrainian military education system,” Stepan Poltorak said.
