The Minister of Defense responded to the 12th anniversary of the start of the Russian-Georgian war.
“Today we mark 12 years since the beginning of the Russian-Georgian war, which claimed the lives of our fellow civilians, soldiers, and police. I respect and bow to their memory. Despite the occupation, our heroic soldiers, in an unequal battle, at the cost of heroism and sacrifice, were able to maintain Georgian statehood.
I believe that the occupation of our territories is temporary. With our pragmatic and peaceful policy, we will be able to de-occupy and unite Georgia”, - said Irakli Gharibashvili.
