Salome Zourabichvili sees the European Political Community as an exercise in discussions between countries that are already in the European Union and those that aspire to be there. According to her, all countries were united around Ukraine at this second EPC meeting.

The president of Georgia declares that "Ukraine has already won because Russia has not succeeded in all its military, psychological and political bets." Salome Zurabishvili points out that the withdrawal of the Wagner paramilitary group from Bakhmut, Sweden's application for membership and Finland's entry into NATO are Russia's failures.

For the President of Georgia, "Zelensky has done an extraordinary job of mobilizing Europe and beyond". Salome Zourabichvili also points out that no one was asking for the resumption of air traffic between Tbilisi and Moscow. "This is a poisoned political gift that the government should have left out," she said. "The approach of Georgia's candidacy to the European Union surely leads Moscow to make small moves but it will not work! There is a very large majority of the population who are pro-European."
