Georgian authorities refused Ukraine's request to return the Buk air defense system to it

Chargé d'Affaires of Ukraine in Georgia, Andrey Kasyanov, said that Georgia had refused Kyiv's request to return to him the Buk anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM), which were transferred to the Georgian side back in 2008.


The Ukrainian side is consistent in its requests for weapons, military equipment and ammunition to all its international partners, including Georgia. Despite the fact that the Georgian government categorically refused to provide military assistance to our country, Ukraine does not intend to use this issue in internal political disputes, rejecting any accusations regarding attempts to drag Georgia into a war with the Russian Federation

– stressed the Ukrainian diplomat.

As Kasyanov added, in addition to anti-aircraft missile systems, Kyiv also requested American-made Javelin anti-tank missile systems from Tbilisi, however, the Georgian authorities did not agree to transfer them.

At the same time, the Ukrainian request from the member of the Georgian parliament from the ruling party Givi Mikanadze did not go unnoticed, who made it clear that at one time his country purchased these complexes, and therefore, this is the property of Georgia.

I repeat once again: not a single such attempt [to drag Georgia into the confrontation between Moscow and Kyiv] will succeed

- said the parliamentarian.

At the same time, as the politician stressed, Georgia will continue to provide Ukraine with all the necessary political and humanitarian assistance.

    Georgians have learned to do business the Ukrainian way. With whom you will lead - from that you will type.

    Georgia refused Kyiv's request to return Buk anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) to it

    As well as the former President of Georgia, and part-time governor of the Odessa region. Saakashvili. The day before, Zelensky's administration, in a brazen and boorish manner, demanded the return of Saakashvili.

    Previously sold want to get back.
    And yet, most likely, the conversation is about a freebie - obviously in the style of modern trends in the "steppes" of Ukraine ...

    And as compensation - didn't the Georgians really offer to sing in chorus?

    The Georgians themselves are sitting there on the point. What Buki? Every berd counts! Learned the lesson of 2008 very well.

    By the way, the Georgians have really become people with a European mindset, they don’t want to join the war themselves, or even show their intentions. But even 10 years ago it was much easier to push the leadership and people of Georgia to the second front.

      Georgians can still tell how it is to be friends with the West. How the West helped them in 2008, when they fell in love with Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
      Better Borjomi in every Russian "Magnit" than to die for their LGBT interests against Russia. Moreover, Russia has nothing against the Georgians now.

    J'aurais aimé que mon pays (La France) ait la même attitude :
    seulement de l'aide humanitaire et au DEUX , Russie et Ukraine...
    Hélas notre "si intelligent" president Français n'est pas capable de voir les conséquences de ses actes ...

    In 2008, the question of the demilitarization of Georgia was not raised, otherwise it was possible to demilitarize all Buki.
