In Ukraine, deputies registered a draft resolution on the use of the historical name of Georgia - Sakartvelo.

The draft was published on the official website of the Verkhovna Rada.

The draft resolution proposes to use the name Sakartvelo officially at the level of state bodies, official correspondence, communication and the media instead of the traditional name Georgia.

In addition, the Georgian people should be called "Kartvels". The initiators of the draft resolution point out that the official Tbilisi for almost 15 years has been trying to convince its international partners to use the historical name of its country - Sakartvelo, instead of "Georgia", which has Russian roots.

The explanatory note to the draft resolution states that the name "Georgia" is used in the world by about 20 countries, most of which are former Soviet republics or countries that were significantly influenced by the Soviet Union. It is noted that "Georgia" is the imperial name that it is called in Russia.

The initiators of the resolution emphasize that Lithuania, Israel, South Korea and Japan have already refused to use the name "Georgia" in their official documents. Most of them have switched to using the Latin name "Georgia", and Lithuania has been using the name "Sakartvelo" since 2021.

Recall that Putin said that he personally initiated the resumption of air traffic with Georgia.
