"If we work together, combining our efforts, the Russian Federation's policy will be ineffective. On the international arena, no one supports Russia, nor do they believe its loud statements. Today, we signed an extremely important document that enables to exchange information on a completely different level, including the situation in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, to be taken into account when planning our actions in each country separately. We will work and share the developments in non-military sphere only against hybrid threats on the part of the Russian Federation and will study how Russia affects not only the occupied territories, which it fully controls due to occupation, but also to the rest of the territory of the country where it is present. Ukraine has something to demonstrate, because we made serious progress in studying and researching the scope of hybrid threats, and also want to maximally explore the achievements of Georgia and Moldova in order to implement the best practices," said Minister Vadym Chernysh.
 
"Today, we officially determined that Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova have common challenges and common threats from the Russian Federation, which we can now confront more effectively, because by uniting our efforts we will be able to counteract the Russian Federation both inside our states and in the international arena; because in the modern world where hybrid conflicts prevail, we must develop modern responses, "noted the State Minister of Georgia for Reconciliation and Civic Equality Ketevan Tsikhelashvili.
Minister Ketevan Tsikhelashvili also informed those present that today, together with the delegations of Ukraine and Moldova, a visit to the village of Odzisi will take place to see the state of affairs near the contact line: how the local population lives, what challenges they have to face every day, and what challenges Georgia still has to face as a country.
"By uniting forces, our three countries led the process of responding to challenges and external threats and used the smart approach. By creating an intergovernmental platform, not only will we be able to identify the problems and threats, but we will be able to use the best practices of Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia, and together withstand the challenges," - said Cristina Lesnik, Vice Prime Minister of Moldova for Reintegration.
This is the first in history of the conflicts of the three states, a trilateral interagency platform whose parties are directly involved in the peaceful conflicts resolution as well as reintegration of uncontrolled and occupied by Russia territories in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.
