Cultural bridge with Georgia

Issue 6, October 2008.

The recent war in the Caucasus has done much to strengthen ties between fellow colour revolution nations Georgia and Ukraine, and on September the majors of Lviv and Georgia’s second city Kutaisi met in the West Ukrainian capital to ink a new cultural cooperation deal and mark festivities being held to celebrate ten years as twin cities. Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadoviy welcomed his Georgian colleague Nugzar Shumagia to a colourful performance by the “Bagrati 2003” troupe of traditional Georgian dancers.
