He said that in the composition of Ukrainian population there is one third of ethnic Russians in the composition of Ukrainian population, we have centuries-old common history and culture. He showed development of Georgia’s history, taking into account the relations which existed between Georgians, Abkhazians, Ossetes and Russians.
