We had a war in 2008, do you remember someone who imposed sanctions on Russia at that time? Our war is not a war, but the war in Ukraine is a war? Where is the logic?

Axar.az reports that this was said by the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili.

Garibashvili noted that after the 2008 war, the United States and Europe continued to do business with Russia as usual:

"If we impose bilateral economic sanctions against Russia, Georgia's economy will collapse and we will harm our people. You know very well, there was a war in 2008, do you remember who imposed sanctions against Russia during the war? No one. No one in the world gave a correct or adequate answer. So my question is: where is the logic? Our war is not a war, but the war in Ukraine is a war? I must say that after the war with Russia in 2008, we were very disappointed by the way things were done with Moscow. After that devastating war, 20% of our country's territory is still occupied by Russia, Russia built two military bases on our historical land, Russia recognized the so-called one, and this occupation is still going on. Therefore, my question to my European and American friends is as follows: dear friends, you did business with Russia as usual, you did not impose sanctions against it. By 2022, the EU paid Russia 2.3 trillion dollars, and no one stopped doing business with Russia, as if nothing had happened.
