The Georgian officials say very interesting things sometimes. For instance, today, Minister of Finance of Georgia Kakha Baindurashvili stated that in 2010 the share of expenses spent on military needs will not be increased and, moreover, in percentage terms, the share of the defense expenditures in the country budget will be lowered. Sounds surprisingly, considering the statement made by President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili before the New Year about the general plans of reservists’ preparation within 2010-2014. It is obvious that if the military budget is left at the current level, the current army expenditure will be significantly reduced, so long as the training centers for reservists, as well as the purchasing of arms require sound financial inflow. Thus, the Georgian army is going to see no modernization promised after the August war. No use mentioning the possible difficulties with the salaries paid to the soldiers and officers.
