Curtis Scaparotti, commander-in-chief of the European command of the USA, opened a new three-year program of military assistance to Washington for the Georgian army and a combat training center in Vaziani near the Georgian capital in Tbilisi, according to VZGLYAD from Tbilisi.


US opened a new program of assistance to the Georgian army


Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria said on this occasion that "cooperation between Georgia and the United States, both globally and in the military sphere, is entering a substantially new stage."

Earlier it was reported that the US will allocate 100 million dollars for military reforms in Georgia. As for the current US military training program of the Georgian military, nine battalions will be trained under three new standards within three years.

The US military has been instructing the Georgian army since the era of ex-President Eduard Shevardnadze. The essence of the new program is that they will prepare not only peacekeepers, but also regular units. As for future exercises with the Americans, if earlier Georgia on joint maneuvers mainly focused on training the military for peacekeeping missions, now the focus will shift to increasing the combat training of Georgian soldiers. The United States also provides for the transition process of the Georgian army from the Soviet and Russian weapons on american. Including Georgia, the Javelins have already been delivered.

The total amount of US financial assistance for the needs of the Georgian army from 1997 was 240 million.

    So three years later, when once again Georgian conceit and self-love in a military uniform flies up to heaven, you will need to wait for a new South Ossetia.

      It’s closer ..., but the fact that Georgia will perform the signal, the probability is high ... sad

        Do you remember the shots when ours near Gori captured weapons depots. Rifle was almost all American. Another thing is heavy weapons, so it will drag on for many years.

      The Armed Forces of South Ossetia and Abkhazia are united with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, so this time there will be no polite people (!)

      Imagine hypothetically how Georgian-trained Georgian forces break into South Ossetia what
      Ossetians remember the lessons of the genocide organized by Georgians and will fight to the last ... I suppose
      all concerned neighbors around will help the Ossetians ... so I suggest that Georgians forget about this people once and for all, otherwise it will be worse for them.

      Georgians can also be understood. Abkhazia and South Ossetia were occupied by them, hundreds of thousands of indigenous Georgian populations were expelled from these territories. No country can put up with this situation

          And this is typical of all the American henchmen — while their allies are organizing genocide on ethnic grounds — this is a fight against bandits and terrorists, and when they fall in their faces for it, it immediately becomes clear that this is occupation and lawlessness

        No, dear, I can’t understand such Georgians ... for the genocide against Ossetians, Russian peacekeepers and Abkhazians it is necessary to answer in all severity of wartime ... they got what they deserved.

        The first hours of the attack on our peacekeepers ...

    I think that Georgians will no longer climb into South Ossetia. They remembered how our peacekeepers stood there to death for the Ossetian people. Dragged, trained Georgians in American way, right up to Tbilisi, without looking back, at the sight of our troops. stop wink

    Oh, something a long time ago this dregs did not arise about the fact that Russia allegedly took something from Georgia. In fact, Russia did not take anything from anyone. In the case of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, in August 2008 we simply corrected the previous legal errors of the EBN. Showing on fingers. 1. The Republic of Georgia declared independence on April 9, 1991, when the USSR still did not think to disintegrate. 2. All issues related to the procedure for the withdrawal of a Union republic from the USSR should have been resolved only on the basis of the Law of the USSR dated April 3, 1990 No. 1409-I "On the Procedure for Solving Issues Related to the Withdrawal of a Union Republic from the USSR." 3. When leaving the USSR, Georgia grossly violated (simply did not give a damn about it) the Law of the USSR of April 3, 1990 N 1409-I. The law signed by President Gorbachev M.S. - recognized in the West as the greatest democrat and the best German. The Georgian SSR had to separately organize referenda in all of its autonomies. What the Georgian SSR did not do. Violation of the Law of April 3, 1990 No. 1409-I? What a violation !! The worst violation !!!
    Article 7. The Supreme Council of the Union Republic submits to the Supreme Soviet of the USSR the results of the referendum. The Supreme Council of a Union Republic, which includes autonomous republics, autonomous entities or places of compact residence of national groups referred to in the second part of Article 3 of this Law, submits to the Supreme Council of the USSR the results of a referendum for each autonomous republic, for each autonomous formation or place of compact residence national groups with conclusions and proposals of the relevant government bodies.
    Then, if it is established that the referendum has been held in accordance with the law, the Supreme Soviet of the USSR submits the matter to the Congress of People's Deputies of the USSR.
    Yes, actually there is a whole bunch of violations.
    For example, a referendum on the restoration of independence of Georgia was held on March 31, 1991. At that time, the decision on the upcoming secession from the USSR was made on February 28, 1991, when the Supreme Soviet of the Georgian SSR banned the holding of a referendum on the preservation of the USSR in Georgia and decided to hold a referendum on the restoration of state independence of Georgia on the basis of the Act of Independence from 26 May 1918
    And according to the Law of the USSR of April 3, 1990 No. 1409-I, from the moment a decision is made on the forthcoming withdrawal from the USSR until a referendum on withdrawal takes place, at least 6 months must pass.
    The following issues should also be resolved: .. read article 14 .. there are many.
    4. Accordingly, the subsequent desire of the Republic of Georgia to see South Ossetia and Abkhazia in its composition was initially illegal. 5. And, to the extent that EBN once recognized the Republic of Georgia, headed by its accomplice on the collapse of the USSR Shevarnadze within the borders of the GSSR - this decision is very dirty from a legal point of view. Only then, no one, neither Georgia, nor the Russian leadership (to be confused with the people of Russia), nor civilized Europe and the United States, unfortunately, were interested in the facts of brazen violation by Georgia and the Russian leadership of the Law by the time of the disintegrated country (USSR). It's a pity. A number of lawyers (Baburin) even then warned the EBN that it was unlawful to recognize the Georgian Republic within the borders of the GSSR. Laws are always Laws. Even if there is a period of change of power and the collapse of the country, Laws do not disappear. Laws must be respected in any case. Their violations do not lead to anything good. What can be seen in the example of Georgia.
