Every day the Russian Federation is taxing the patience of Georgia and is trying to draw the country into a conflict. This statement was made by the Minister of Defense of Georgia Tina Khidasheli while commenting on the events that unfolded in Shida (Inner) Kartli, around the line of occupation, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Georgia Online.
“The tragedy that has been going on for the past 7 years at the artificially drawn borders is the matter of concern of everyone. However, the main task is that the country does not become a victim of these provocations, the provocation that the Russian state is constantly engaged in against our country. Installing of a banner here or somewhere else – I do not think it would have had a political and strategic importance for the Russian government, except that they are taxing our patience every day trying to draw us into a conflict, which the current Georgian authorities will not allow to happen,” Tina Khidasheli told the reporters.
According to the Minister of Defense, due to current events the reaction of the international community is high. “By provoking the Russian government is making a very big mistake, because it is worsening already strained relations it has with the civilized world and is putting another stone in complication of these relations. It is their choice, however, thanks to it the Georgian state is getting more friends and supporters,” Khidasheli said.
