Georgian PM 'Shocked' by Malaysian Plane Crash in Ukraine
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 18 Jul.'14 / 01:45

Georgian PM Irakli Garibashvili said in a written statement that he is “shocked and saddened” by Malaysian airliner “disaster” in which flight MH17 with 295 people on board crashed in eastern Ukraine, the scene of fighting between pro-Russian separatists and the Ukrainian government forces.

“A joint international effort has to establish what has happened,” reads the Georgian PM’s statement. “We will wait for the results. Our thoughts and prayers are now with the families of those who have died.”

Ukrainian authorities have accused pro-Russian separatists of downing the passenger plane; President Petro Poroshenko said it was a “terrorist act.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin said, according to Kremlin: “This tragedy would not have occurred if there were peace in that country, or in any case, if hostilities had not resumed in southeast Ukraine. And certainly, the state over whose territory it occurred is responsible for this terrible tragedy.”
