Prime Minister of Georgia has released a special statement regarding the developments in Ukraine. Irakli Gharibashvili`s statement was published on the website of the government of Georgia. Prime Minister expresses concerns, condemns violence and conveys condolences to the families of the people killed in the clashes during the past few days. ``Solving the crisis by violence is unacceptable. This principally contradicts European values. In such situation, the government is held accountable in the first place, because it is responsible for avoiding escalation, bloodshed and civil confrontation. I am joining the democratic world, which calls on the parties to stop violence and find the peaceful ways for discharging this big crisis only by means of dialogue. I hope that in this difficult moment the government and the people of Ukraine will show their wisdom and avoid more tragic development of the situation in the country,` Prime Minister said in the statement.
