Statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia D. Zalkaliani on banning the movement across the occupation line by the occupation regimesMonday, 21 January 2019 12:53
At the press briefing following the cabinet meeting the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, David Zalkaliani made a statement regarding the decision of Russian occupation regimes to ban the movement across the occupation line from January 2019.
“We call upon the Russian Federation and its occupation regimes to immediately open the so-called crossing points across the occupation line. First and foremost it is a humanitarian issue and gravely violates the fundamental right to freedom of movement”, – David Zalkaliani stated.
According to the Minister, the decision of the Russian occupation regime in Tskhinvali to introduce new discriminatory measures for Akhalgori population from February 2019 is another grave concern since it envisages additional restriction of free movement of ethnic Georgians living in Tskhinvali region.
David Zalkaliani stressed that the Co-Chairs of Geneva International Discussions are fully informed about the current situation in the occupied territories.
The Minister underlined that the government of Georgia will spare no efforts to facilitate ensuring the protection of the fundamental rights and improvement of the living conditions of the population on the ground through peaceful and diplomatic efforts.
Biopic (biographical movie) about Lesya Ukrainka will be directed by Georgian movie director and scriptwriter - Nana Janelidze. Also, casting will be held shortly and the project team will start filming a teaser.
Cinematic portfolio of Nana Janelidze includes 5 feature-length works directed by her and 6 works in which she is the author of the script. In particular, she wrote the script of Repentance (მონანიება) (directed by Tengiz Abuladze, 1987). The movie received the Grand Prix of the Cannes Film Festival and was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.The movie about Lesya Ukrainka will be the first filmstrip of Nana Janelidze made in Ukraine.
“Lesya Ukrainka – it is a dusty portrait on a school wall, this is a live, passionate, jealous and dedicated woman who is fighting a deadly disease. She spent greedily and “felt” each moment, given to her by her fate, in order to depict in her work the heavy burden of her big talent. As soon as I heard about the project, I instantly felt that I wanted to work on it because this is really inspiring” – Nana Janelidze says.
The movie with the working title “Lesya Ukrainka. Forest Edge (Uzlisia)” is the story of a great poetess from her early years until her last days of life. The two realities – daily life and Lesya’s inner world are closely intertwined and depict all key turns of her fate. Alexander Lavrenchuk is working on the script of the biopic. Experts of the life and work of Lesya Ukrainka are actively involved in the process of work on the picture by the team. Julia Sinkevych (JS Films, General Producer of Odessa International Film Festival) is the creative producer and author of the idea, and Maria Moskalenko (FX FILM Georgia) is a co-producer of the movie.
"To us, the story of Lesya Ukrainka is very personal. We wanted it to be filmed by a woman. We discussed directors from Ukraine and from Georgia – because Lesya Ukrainka’s life is closely linked to these countries. We needed a director with a new and unbiased view and all these characteristics are wonderfully combined in Nana Janelidze. The script inspired her from the first lines – and now we are actively working on it and will soon start filming a teaser” – say the producers: Julia Sinkevych and Maria Mosalenko.
On September 12, a grant agreement on the support of the project was signed between the company JS Film and Ukrainian Cultural Foundation. The project “Lesya Ukrainka, Forest Edge (Uzlisia)” won the competition of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation and took the first place among international cooperation projects in the category of audiovisual art and the 3rd place among all international projects.
Notably, the biopic script was selected for participation in the program ScripTeast.

And Turkish Çalik Holding, which are old partners of our country in realization of big infrastructural projects as well as Japanese TOYO Engineering Corporation, for which polymeric plant in Kiyanly became the first big project in Turkmenistan.
It was mentioned during the conversation that realization of this large-scale projects would be new important step in expansion of production capacity of national oil and gas industry, which development is treated with great importance. Intensification of gas processing segment is very current due to leading position of Turkmenistan in the world by gas reserves.
Turkmenistan pays great attention to the cooperation with Japan and the Republic of Korea including in the context of development of constructive dialog with the countries of Asian Pacific Region as one of strategic directions of its foreign policy and economic activity. Every year, this partnership, which is built of long-term basis under existing intergovernmental agreements and contract, gains new stimulus and specific content.

All of them greeted National leader with loud applauses.
Addressing the participants, Turkmen leader congratulated all on this remarkable event – opening of new petrochemical complex for production of polyethylene and polypropylene in Kianly Settlement, Balkan Velayat.
President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov noted that recently, the 27th anniversary of independence of our country was widely celebrated. Before the Independence Day, the first session of the People’s Council has been conducted on high organizational level. During the session, important objectives for provision of further comprehensive and dynamic development of the country have been outlined.
For example, the volume of the main investments to the economy has grown by more than 50 times for the years of Independence. 68 percent of the investments, which make 124 billion UD dollars, were sent to production sphere, which allowed building more than 200 big facilities.
As is known, our state has huge hydrocarbon reserves and takes leading positions in the world by number of deposits, the Head of the State continued. Recently, big work is carried out for production and processing of this valuable material and its stable and reliable supply to consumers. Such large facility as Garabogazkarbamid plant, which was also put into operation recently, can be brought as example.
This year, the construction of Afghan part of Turkmenistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India gas pipeline has been launched. The opening of new transnational gas line will give the opportunity to supply the above-mentioned countries with 33 billion cubic meters of Turkmen gas per year.
It is very important for provision of prosperous life of Turkmen people, achievement of peace and sustainable development on the region and on the planet, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov highlighted.
At the same time, our country not just export of mineral resources including natural gas to foreign markets but also pays great attention to the processing of raw materials. Efficient work aimed at production of necessary high quality and competitive goods from own resources is carried out.
This is visually indicated by the opening of new petrochemical complex for production of polyethylene and polypropylene in Kiyanly, which construction started on April 22, 2014. This big investment project to the amount of more than 3 billion 400 million US dollars was completed by the State Concern Turkmengaz together with Korean and Japanese companies. Production capacities of new complex were designed for processing of five billion cubic meters of gas per year.
High technology equipment of the facility allows producing 386 thousand tons of polyethylene and 81 thousand tons of polypropylene per year. After extraction of ethane and butane, which are used for production of the polymers, the remaining 4.5 billion cubic meters of pure gas would be delivered to gas pipeline system.
Qualified personnel has been trained for work at this high technology facility. More than 1,000 people had a training in training centres of the country and abroad. The plant has all conditions for productive work and comfort rest. The complex has canteen, hall and sport ground.
In this regard, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov expressed the gratitude to all specialists and construction personnel who participated in creation of this powerful modern facility as well as to the representatives of Japanese and Korean companies.
The facility, which construction was planned under the Programme of development of oil and gas industry of the country until 2030, became visual evidence of turning of independent neutral Turkmenistan into industrially developed state and the country producing ready-made commodities as well as the evidence of great-scale work that is done in the sphere of using natural resources for the interests of the nation, the President highlighted.
The Head of the State noted that strict attention is paid to the requirements of ecological safety during construction of various facilities in Turkmenistan. Great attention is also paid to the introduction of innovations and modern technologies. All these aspects were considered during construction of new facility.
Opening of new powerful complex would support the improvement of positions of our country not only at the world market of oil and gas resources but polymeric products as well, the President of Turkmenistan said, having expressed the confidence that this facility would make significant input to the current achievements of the country and would serve for many years to future generations.

The speech of the Head of Turkmenistan was welcomed by load applauses.

It can be achieved by wise planning of economic activity, wide implementation of clean, environmentally friendly innovative technologies during realization of big industrial projects.

The President highlighted that large-scale industrial programme in the country is closely connected with environmental protection issues. Supporting the efforts of the world community for reduction of green gases emission, Turkmenistan pays great attention to wide implementation of modern environmentally safe and resource saving technologies in industry including in oil and gas, power energy and chemical spheres.
Having said that innovations and the best world practice would be introduced to all these spheres of the economy, the Head of the State expressed the gratitude for the recognition and support of the work carried out by Turkmenistan in this direction.
After, short video presentation about huge potential, success and achievements of national oil and gas complex was demonstrated to the participants on panoramic display in 360 degrees format with use of special effects and laser technology.
The culmination comes and under the applauses of the participants President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov starts the operation of polymeric plant pushing the button.
The monitors demonstrate the video, which was also made by special video equipment, about new facility and process of production of polyethylene and polypropylene.
The State Concern Turkmengaz completed 3 billion 400 million US dollars project together with foreign partners – LG International and Hyundai Engineering (the Republic of Korea) as well as TOYO Engineering Corporation (Japan). Three side contract was signed during official visit of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov to Japan in 2013.
The facility has modern equipment from Japan, the Republic of Korea, Great Britain, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and other European countries. It has four main technological installations – gas separation, ethane processing, polypropylene and polyethylene production units. All processes are automated and control form the central post.
Advanced engineering solutions were implemented during installation of auxiliary systems of sea water intake and desalination, utilization, treatment and recycled use of process water, steam, air and nitrogen production, fire system, etc. The complex is with power from gas turbine generator. It has warehouses for chemical agents and ready-made polymeric products.
Production of polymers at Liyanly petrochemical complex is based on modern technologies, which distinguishing feature is a deep extraction of all additional components from raw material by unique schemes. In particular, COREFLUX™ technology is used at gas separation unit, which provides efficient extraction of methane and ethane from natural gas as well as widely used technology for extraction of so called ‘sour gases’ and mercury mixtures.
The ethane unit is designed for processing of 685,000 tons of hydrocarbon materials per year.
It is worth mentioning that the facility has developed the production of high-density polyethylene from the polymerization reaction of ethylene under law pressure. Innovene™S technology, which is among the three of the most utilized technologies in the world petrochemical industry, is used in this case. The licence was issued by INEOS Technologies (UK), which is one of the biggest international corporations that has chemical facilities bought from such giant of the industry as BP, ICI and BASF. By the way, this is the first licence of Innovene™S from INEOS Technologies in Central Asia.
Open door and beneficial interstate cooperation policy of the President of Turkmenistan, high growth rates of national economy, large-scale programmes of development of industrial sector, favourable investment climate make good prepositions for activation of the partnership with foreign business circles and wide implementation of the world practice in many spheres, first in scientifically based and high technology branches.
This is visually indicated by the fact that project of construction of Kiyanly petrochemical complex received special award of TFX (UK) as one of the ten best projects of Europe and Asia, which is financed by export credit agencies.
Total amount of credit agreements signed by the State Bank for Foreign Economic Affairs of Turkmenistan with Japanese International Cooperation Bank, Export and Import Bank of Korea and the Syndicate of financial institutions of Japan, Germany, France, Korea, China, Italy, Austria and Switzerland participating in the project us more than 2.5 billion US dollars.
All of these visually illustrate the interest and willingness to investment and technological cooperation with Turkmenistan from big world business, which indicate the trust to our country as to reliable, stable and responsible partners with good reputation, high international authority and big perspectives of growth.
After, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov visited the section of ready-made production, which includes seven types of polyethylene and five types of polypropylene received in the process of adding of various components to polymeric material. This process, which is called compounding, gives the opportunity to modify the spectrum of the main features of polymeric item. Special equipment including the extruder is used for this important operation.
The granules of ready-made product go the warehouse where it is packed in bags of various weight.
Being very solid, durable and resistant to acids, bases, greases and oils as well as having excellent di electrical features, the polyethylene is used as a material for production of industrial and household products like films, plastic bags, pipes, cable insulation. Chemical containers, barrels, toys, dishware, kitchen and bathroom ware, sewing and furniture accessories, spares for vehicles and household equipment as well as big construction as playgrounds, wells, flyovers, etc. are made of the polyethylene.
Granulated polypropylene is highly requested at the world markets. The demand for this product is constantly growing in the last decade, which is related to several factors. This polymer is easy to process and has unique features like light weight, durability, resistance to high temperatures. Due to innovative technologies, there are more and more fields for its application. Wide variety of goods starting from packing film and plastic dishware to high technology details for cars and household electronics is made of polypropylene these days.
It is worth to mention that this summer, biaxial oriented polypropylene film facility with annual output of 21,000 tons has been put into operation at Turkmenbashy Refinery Complex.
As is known, the Garabogazkarbamid plant was opened one month ago in Caspian region with the participation of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and today, the monitors installed at Kiyanly petrochemical complex demonstrated the footages of the shipment of the first batch of production exported from the Garabogazkarbamid plant.
After familiarization with this production section, the President of Turkmenistan left the entry in the Book of Honoured Guests.
Specialists of the complex expressed the gratitude to President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov for construction of modern production facility of petrochemical industry with comfort conditions for work of personnel and assured that they would work hard.
On behalf of the personnel of oil and gas industry, the Head of the State receive commemorative gift.
Having wished success in work to the personnel of the plant, the Head of the State presented them with the keys for new vehicles.
After, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov went to the place of tree planting event, having looked around the production facilities of new industrial giant on his way.
As per tradition, the Head of the state opened autumn green campaign, having planted the first tree. The participants of the event have joined the initiative of the President.
