NATO airfield jump will appear in Georgia

The United States and Georgia have agreed to modernize the infrastructure of the Vaziani airfield with the aim of creating a major NATO military logistics center, reports Kommersant.


NATO airfield "jump" to appear in Georgia


According to Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria, the creation of the NATO-Georgia Defense Readiness Center will raise cooperation with the alliance to a new level.

This center will be the third NATO facility in Georgia. The first is a training center for mountain shooters in Sachkhere, the second is a training center in Krtsanisi.

The initiative to build a new facility belongs to the Georgian side. In October, Izoria invited the Americans to continue the development of military infrastructure in the country, meaning Vaziani. After modernization, the airfield will be able to receive any transport aircraft of NATO countries.

The cost of work is still unknown. Technical details are under discussion, noted Izoria.

As the Georgian expert Irakli Aladashvili noted, a modern airfield is necessary for NATO forces to quickly transfer troops in the event of an exacerbation of the situation. In his opinion, the choice on Vaziani was not accidental - the airfield built there in 1942, taking into account its strategic location, played a key role in building the military infrastructure of the entire South Caucasus.

In addition, the Georgian Defense Ministry often conducts maneuvers in the Vaziani area with the participation of NATO forces, and it is more convenient to transfer equipment by air than by sea, the expert explained.

At the same time, he stressed that there is no talk about creating a full-fledged American base in Georgia. Although the current plan is a very serious step in this direction, he added.

    Georgia does not play enough with NATO.
    In past games, they lost Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
    Oh, play out.

        The key to Georgia is Baku oil.
        If Pashinyan plays with the United States, Russia can support Azerbaijan.
        Friendship with Azerbaijan is a checkmate of Armenia and Georgia.

In October, Izoria invited the Americans to continue the development of military infrastructure in the country, meaning Vaziani. After modernization, the airfield will be able to receive any transport aircraft of NATO countries.

          This is a pseudo-Georgian choice imposed by the Pentagon.

          First of all. For sovereignly dependent countries - Georgia, Ukraine, Poland, etc. - In principle, there are no "national" initiatives of their own at the "top". Georgia's request is just a voice for Washington's wishes.

          Secondly. The assurances of Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria that "with the establishment of a NATO Defense Readiness Center, Georgia will raise cooperation with NATO to a new level" is nothing more than an assurance by the TRAITOR of the Georgian people in favor of the United States and its Pentagon.

          And thirdly. Georgia’s possible entry into NATO as a consumable for the Pentagon it does not at all mean and does not guarantee the future of the Georgian people the possibility for their geopolitical and physical existence in general.

            It is advisable not to bring to the acute phase when nuclear weapons will be used .. but in general it’s easier said than to win .. Now we have much less trump cards than during the USSR .. The cowboy’s fervor would be transferred to China, let it be amused, but we should take advantage of it. Well, and as an argument, you still need to impose posidon on America, but give a hint, fight and the tsunami will wash you off into the depths of history ..

              Our main trump card in the game "for Georgia" is our market. It should be so convincing for their goods that NATO with its bases would walk away. Georgians are not one of those who do not understand their benefits.

              GDP has a new concept of the Cold War and the arms race - multipolar.
              Check out the news feed on VO: all countries are arming.
              Our weapons are optimal in terms of price / quality. More and more multipolar partners will buy it. Especially after the Syrian advertising campaign.

And now resorts are recognized as unprofitable and are slowly becoming extinct. Here is such a sad analysis.

    Strategically, such a base, or the airfield will not give anything. About 500 km from the Black Sea, less than 250-300 from the Caspian. Even less than 100 km from South Ossetia, about 100-150 km from the territory of the Russian Federation. Even the expanders will not have to be installed, in a couple of three years before there the rocket artillery will reach.

    In my opinion, our three strategic mistakes at the beginning of the 21st century:
    - "abstained" from the UN Security Council vote on Libya (President Medvedev),
    - stopped our tanks 40 km away. from Tbilisi at the "request" of Sarkozy (the same president),
    - entered into the "Minsk agreements" on Ukraine when it had already "gone to bed". (President Putin).

Moreover, the maintenance, storage and disposal of nuclear material will be much more expensive. Several units of conventional missiles, with warheads weighing about 300-500 kg, will do their job. And cheaper and safer.
