I pay tribute to the memory of our heroic soldiers and civilians who died in the August war, Prime Minister of Georgia says in his statement posted on Facebook in connection with the 14th anniversary of the 2008 Russia-Georgia war.
“14 years have passed since the beginning of the August 2008 war, which claimed the lives of many of our fellow citizens. For 14 years, the heart of our country - Samachablo, Tskhinvali region and Abkhazia - has been occupied by Russia.
I pay tribute to the memory of our heroic soldiers and civilians who died in the August war.
We have chosen a peaceful, reasonable policy as a way to restore territorial integrity and unify the country, and we believe that we will definitely achieve the goal - Georgia will be united!”, - writes Irakli Garibashvili.
