The Foreign Ministry of Georgia stated that Ukraine supplies arms to Georgia with observation of all the international norms and standards - GHN.


"The Ukrainian party at all the levels highlighted that the process has already been open and has been conducted with observation of all the rules and international standards. Subsequently there's nothing illegal," said David Jagalania, the deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia.

Previously Georgia Times reported that Ukrainian MP Valeriy Konovalyuk stated that Ukraine continues arms supplies to Georgia. "The Yushchenko-Saakashvili arms business goes on,"he said.

According to Konovalyuk, later in October Ukrspetsstroi plans to sell to Georgia 12 modern T-84 Oplot tanks, among other weapons. The coming deliveries also include 10 T-72 tanks, three BTR-80 armored personnel carriers, 20 Igla man-portable antiaircraft missile systems and 40 Strela shoulder-fired surface-to-air missile systems, as well as an assortment of ammunition, shells and rockets. He added that the georgian side had already paid 45 mln Ukrainian hryvnas [USD 5.6 mln].
