Georgian army begins rearmament with NATO standard weapons

Georgia began rearmament at weapon NATO standard. According to the press service of the Georgian Ministry of Defense, the units of the country's Defense Forces have begun to receive the American 249 mm M5,56 light machine guns.


On Wednesday, Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Garibashvili, together with the commander of the Georgian Defense Forces, Major General Giorgi Matiashvili, personally supervised the rearmament process by visiting a military base in Vaziani.

The Georgian military department stressed that the rearmament is being carried out with the support of the United States. At the first stage, M249 machine guns will be re-equipped with units that have already been trained under a joint program with the United States called the GDRP (Georgian Defense Readiness Program), as well as units for the command of exercises and military education.

According to this program, six battalions have already been trained in the Georgian army, and the preparation of the seventh has begun. In total, within the framework of the GDRP, it is planned to prepare and equip nine Georgian mobile battalions according to NATO standards.

In June of this year, Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Garibashvili announced that the Georgian army is moving to NATO standards. In the course of this transition, the combat units of the Georgian Defense Forces will be re-equipped with American-made M-4 automatic rifles, as well as other modern weapons of NATO standard.

      Georgians are still fighters! They are dancers, singers ..., kebab makers and bake bread is not bad. But to fight is not their vocation .. I do not want to offend the Georgians, but they always fought in full and always fled under the protection of Russia ... And now they will be killed and abandoned ... With Russia you need to be friends and trade, and not switch to gay standards, including NATO. Is it NATO for you?

        Georgians could somehow help Armenia. All the same, the neighbors are Christians. They hung their entire flag with crosses, but in fact they look in the mouth of the Turks and spread them out in front of NATO.

          Georgians have a mental and psychological trauma before Turkey. The Turks have lowered and humiliated this people throughout history ...
          In 1783, simultaneously with the annexation of Crimea, Catherine II respected the request of the Georgian king. On July 24, an agreement was signed in the Georgievsk fortress (now in the Stavropol Territory) on the transfer of Georgia under the patronage of Russia. The Georgievsky treatise immediately provided the Georgian nobility and merchants with equal rights with the corresponding Russian estates throughout the territory of the Empire.
          But very soon Georgia itself violated this agreement. Playing a double game, Tsar Heraclius concluded a treaty of friendship with Turkey, with which Russia at that time was going to fight. The Georgievsky treatise lost its force, and Russia withdrew its garrisons from Kartli-Kakheti. As a result, the country was left without protection when Persian troops invaded it in 1795.
          In 1799, Emperor Paul I provided military assistance to Georgia. The new Tsar of Georgia, George XII, on his deathbed, asked for direct citizenship of Russia. In January 1801, Pavel issued a manifesto on the annexation of Georgia to the Russian Empire. The annexation took place in violation of the rights of the dynasty in the eyes of the people, which caused unrest.
          Alexander I, who ascended the throne two months later, was forced to resolve legal and political issues related to this acquisition. In April 1802, a new manifesto was issued. The excitement was pacified. Georgia lost its statehood, but its Orthodox inhabitants received all the rights of the corresponding Russian estates.

          Adjara. Turkish occupation of Georgia.
          "Between 1803 and 1878, as a result of the Russian-Turkish wars, the remaining principalities and territories (Batumi, Artvin, Akhaltsikhe and Poti, as well as Abkhazia at the request of Prince Safarbey Georgy) were also annexed to Russia.
          Georgia was united for the first time in many years.
          And yet, more than 200 years later, the Turks conquered Georgia and Adjara not by military force, but by playing on the greed of the local elite.
          Such a fate awaits other limitrophe countries.
          Adjara has always been a very specific region, if not a problematic one.
          From about the XNUMXth century and, in fact, until the middle of the second half of the XNUMXth century, Adjara was part of the Ottoman Empire.
          This had a noticeable effect on the entire region.
          So, unlike the rest of Christian Georgia, Islam is very widespread in Adjara.
          According to some reports, up to half of the region's population is Muslim.
          Initially, the Adjarians, of course, professed Christianity, but the Ottoman rule made itself felt. And now the number of Muslims is striving to equal the number of Christians. Superimposed on this is the fact that Erdogan himself is an Adjarian by his ancestors.
          And his ideas of neo-Ottomanism have not gone anywhere.
          And given the history of the Kurds, we can confidently say that the West will choose the Turks between the Turks and Georgians.
          Batumi is the future pearl of Turkey.
          Unless, of course, the Georgians have their brains in place and they do not remember that there is only one defense from Turkey.
          There are almost no jobs for local even laborers.
          The attendants of any Turkish institution, whether it is a restaurant or a construction team, consists of 95% of Turks. Georgians get the jobs of laborers, and then, according to Robakidze, for the same work, Georgians will receive one seventh of the Turk if they succeed.
          Not to mention culture, education, science, industry ...
          Sovereignty was replaced by investment- creeping Turkization.
          The local population will be completely Turkish.
          I've been tracking this issue for over 10 years.
          If the reader wants, for example, from Ankara or Istanbul to go to the east of the country to look at the fortress in Rize or relax in the seaside town of Hopa, then he can easily order a ticket to Batumi marked “Hopa”.
          And this flight will not be considered international.
          At the Turkish airport, you will go through passport and customs control, and in Batumi, not a single Georgian customs representative even has the right to touch you.
          Instead, you take a Turkish bus straight from the airport and, if you wish, go to Hopa, Rize, etc.
          In general, from the center of Batumi, even with traffic jams, you can get to the Turkish-Georgian border in less than half an hour. It is easy to imagine the scope for expanding "cooperation" such a situation provides ...
          Some of the ordinary people will say that this is just a business, a familiar business approach.
          And it will be wrong.
          The entrepreneurial interests of the Turks in Adjara are actively subsidized by the official authorities of Ankara.
          Moreover, the Turkish authorities even provide low-interest loans to compatriots who have left for Adjara to buy housing almost at the level of the national program.
          Yes, yes, the Turkish homeland seems to give money to the “emigrants” so that they stay in the “foreign land”.
          Therefore, one should not be surprised at the all-pervading Turkishness, when Turks are also one of the largest mobile operators in Adjara. In short, unfortunately Georgia is gradually turning into a Turkish colony before our very eyes. This is sad.

          All the same Christian neighbors

          It's not gonna go. Georgians with Armenians, were friends only in "Mimino". But in fact, they "love" each other so much that they cannot eat. And it doesn't matter who there are Christians in the Caucasus and who are Muslims. Honor is above the roof for everyone.

      Amers don't give a damn how they are fighting. They will take them into the block anyway. And they will place bases there. With anyone, even with saboteurs. And they will attack the Ossetians on quiet. Khimozu test in public.

    It was just a matter of time. Georgia, Ukraine will fight against us if there is a war. And NATO's policy does not end there with all our neutral or allied neighbors, they will try to win over to their side, overlay flags like wolves. It is not enough to have a pro-Russian president; it is necessary to have a pro-Russian elite. Although this is bad even in our country ...

      "Declare war" and fight is a big difference. The governments declare war, and the people fight

    By August of the eighth year, they were puffed up by the same standards, they received the same help, they were trained by the same instructors.
    units of the country's Defense Forces began to receive the American 249 mm M5,56 light machine guns.
    During this transition, the combat units of the Georgian Defense Forces will be re-equipped with American-made M-4 automatic rifles, as well as other modern weapons of NATO standard.
    It's funny. except for the rise in the cost of ammunition and the process of fire training, this does nothing

    So this is understandable, tk. in August 2008, ours took everything out of the Georgian warehouses and there were just a lot of M-4s.
