Bacho Akhalaia calls for Georgians to assist Ukraine in battles against Putin`s Russia
The former minister of defence and internal affairs of Georgia, Bacho Akhalaia has released a special statement regarding the situation in Ukraine and called on his compatriots to be on alert for assisting the brother nation and struggling together against Putin`s Russia.
`There is a greater danger – a serious possibility of intrusion of Russia`s regular army into Ukraine. For this moment we should mobilize, but the support by Georgian officers and military servicemen will not be sufficient – there is a need for mobilization of free citizens of Georgia to provide strong and additional resistance to Putin`s Russia. That`s why I call on you to at least make list of those brave Georgians, who will be prepared to travel to Ukraine promptly and immediately on behalf of Abkhazia and reinforce the Georgians residing in Ukraine, if Russia intrudes into Ukraine,` Akhalaia has posted.
