Not far from Tbilisi began joint exercise Noble Partner

44
The “Decent Partner” exercise began in Georgia near Tbilisi, in which units of American, British and Georgian troops are participating, a newspaper correspondent reports from the scene. Kommersant.




“To participate in the joint Noble Partner 2016 training exercise (“ Worthy Partner 2016 ”) eight main combat ships were brought to Georgia by sea from Georgia tanks US Ground Forces M1A2 Abrams, seven M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, several M119 howitzers, and about 15 Hummer ATVs. Yesterday, against the background of this military equipment, 650 American, 500 Georgian and 150 British military men lined up the runway of the Vaziani military airfield in a suburb of Tbilisi. At the beginning of the ceremony, the hymns of three countries were sounded. Then, the participants in the maneuvers honored with a minute of silence the memory of the soldiers who died during the peacekeeping operation in Afghanistan, ”the report says.



Georgian President Margvelashvili called the Western military "brothers by arms". In addition, he stated: “These exercises confirm that we are on the right path and Georgia will definitely become a member of NATO,” the supreme commander did not hide his optimism. “We are in favor of having more NATO in Georgia and more of Georgia in NATO!”

In turn, Tina Khidasheli, the head of the Georgian Ministry of Defense, expressed confidence that her country "despite the occupation of part of its territory by Russia, will definitely become a member of NATO - just as a divided Germany became a member of the alliance."



According to "Kommersant", "on the first day of the exercise, the British military parachuted into the Vaziani military base from C-130 aircraft, and from them, part of the military equipment was dropped by parachutes." Then the units stormed the building, captured, according to legend, by terrorists.

“The main goal of the exercise is to prepare the Georgian contingent for participation in the NATO rapid reaction force,” a representative of the Georgian Defense Ministry, Katsitadze, told reporters.

The exercise will last until May 26.

          Now the "partners" are planning to settle in Georgia themselves.
          The first official unit of the NATO Response Force will appear in Georgia after the end of the Noble Partner-2016 military exercises in this country (“Decent Partner”).

          This was reported by RIA Novosti, the Minister of Defense of the Republic Tina Khidasheli said on Wednesday.

          As the Minister noted, Georgia will certainly become a member of NATO, like Lithuania and Latvia, Albania and Montenegro. One of the main reasons why the exercises at the Vaziani airfield near Tbilisi are important, Khidasheli called the formation of her own alliance unit in the country.

          “After the completion of these exercises, Georgia will for the first time have a certified NATO response force unit. The first official Georgian unit of NATO with NATO stripes, ”said Khidasheli.

          It’s not limited to only Georgians - that’s for sure. An alliance base will appear in Georgia.

      South Ossetia (South Ossetia) will close the border with Georgia during the Georgian-American Noble Partner-2016 exercises, which began on May 11 and will continue until May 26. Temporary checkpoints on the demarcated border of Georgia and the Ossetian Republic will be closed to prevent provocations. This was reported to Izvestia in the administration of the president of South Ossetia.

      In general, I went there on foot. It’s bitter that the Georgians sank to the role of prostitutes in the notorious NATO.
      Where is the Georgievsky treatise according to which Russia covered the Georgians "rear" from the Turks who are now ready to kill them all overnight. Now they are "partners".
      Is it Erdogan’s?
      A simple Georgian peasant, a hard worker, a hospitable host. In fact, General Shalikashvili opened the way to NATO, who took the descendants of Georgian princes to study at West Point on his recommendation during Shevardnadze's time. Now the fruits sown have yielded in the form of "coffee" friends. How long is it it was but it seems like yesterday.
      A short-sighted attitude towards Georgia is evident.
      Who is Shalikashvili?
      John Malchase David Shalikashvili (born John Malchase David Shalikashvili, Georgian ჯონ მალხაზ დევიდ შალიკაშვილი; June 27, 1936, Warsaw - July 23, 2011, Tacoma) is an American general of Georgian origin.
      John (Ivan) Shalikashvili was born in Warsaw in 1936 in the family of Lieutenant Colonel Prince Dmitry Iosifovich Shalikashvili and Countess Maria Alexandrovna Ridiger-Belyaeva. Dmitry Shalikashvili (1896-1978) was the grandson of the Baku governor, Lieutenant General Dmitry Semenovich Staroselsky (1832-1884), and on his paternal side, he was a representative of the same Georgian princely family as the Russian sentimentalist P.I. Shalikov. In 1921, Dmitry Shalikashvili emigrated through Turkey to Poland, where he met Maria Alexandrovna (1906-1993), of Polish-German descent, the daughter of a major general, Count Alexander Alekseevich Ridiger-Belyaev (1867-1939). [1] Thus, on the maternal side, John Shalikashvili is the great-nephew of Mikhail Alekseevich Belyaev, the last Minister of War of the Russian Empire, and cousin of Major General of the Russian Federation and Lieutenant General of the Paraguayan Army Ivan Timofeevich Belyaev
      During World War II, Dmitry Shalikashvili served in the Georgian Legion, which was later included in the SS troops, and was captured by the Allies in Normandy. His family remained in Warsaw until 1944, then went to Germany, and in 1951 to the United States, like all SS sheep ..
      In 1957, John Shalikashvili joined the military. Veteran of the Vietnam War.
      He commanded the armed forces of NATO in Europe. In 1991, he led the Provide Comfort operation to provide humanitarian assistance to Kurdish refugees in northern Iraq. From autumn 1993 to 1997 - chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was the organizer of the operation to bomb the positions of the Bosnian Serbs in 1995.
      He had the rank of full general (4 stars), the second after the highest rank of the United States Army General (not assigned since 1950).
      He resigned in September 1997, taught at Stanford University, and in 2004 was part of the John Kerry campaign headquarters.

      He died at the age of 75 on July 23, 2011 in a Madigan military medical center at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord military base, located 15 km from the city of Tacoma, from a stroke [2].

      These are the things. And Georgians still feel sorry. Not those who eat from the hands of Americans but ordinary people in this country.

        Rather, it is a complex of "independence", by which they understand the possibility of barking with impunity, and even for cookies, at the former owner, who built houses, roads, factories and other newspapers and steamers for them, but once removed them from the chain and gave free rein. Interestingly, those who were fed the best, they show the highest degree of "independence".

    With such "partners" and the name was correct, "partner" used and went. It is necessary as the Americans do, they came gouged and left. They brought peace and democracy so to speak. Japan normally took nuclear pills, and did not even wait for an apology. And the occupation suffers. About four The islands whine, but niggle with these former republics. Call a spade a spade. Now the Russian army is not a model of 2008. A qualitatively different level. So let's partner each other more interestingly and decently ...

    Just as in reality I imagine. In the evenings, combat partners gather for a bottle of tsinandali and remember the days gone by. And a military Georgian general tells them: "Afghanistan? What is this. In 2008, the Russians had not yet approached Gori, and I, with my whole family, boarded a steamer to Turkey. So let's drink, genatsvale, for efficiency!"
