2010-01-20 18:33

In July 2008, one month before attack of Georgia on South Ossetia, on Sakartvelo TV channel, the Reservist documentary was shown. The film was aimed to popularize reserve military service.


In this movie a quotation from Hitler was used: it sounded on the background of episode with young man signing up -

The quotation is: 'It must be thoroughly understood that the lost land will never be won back by solemn prayers, nor by hopes in any League of Nations, but only by the force of arms.' Adolf Hitler, 1932.". The source highlights the small audience of the channel, and said the debate started in Internet.

Sakartvelo channel is associated with the Ministry of Defense, and the latter couldn't but react on the scandal.

The statement was issued. "Discussions are taking place in internet recently about a documentary film, Reservist, aired by the TV company, Sakartvelo, in 2008. Authors of the film use an aggressive quotation by Adolf Hitler. This part of the film is distributed in internet as a TV spot and aims at cheap political goals to discredit the Georgian Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces. The Georgian Ministry of Defense states, that the film and especially the use of Adolf Hitler's quotation did not and does not reflect the position of the Georgian Ministry of Defense. It represents a personal initiative and vision of the author of the film. The Ministry of Defense categorically distances itself from the quotation used in the film and from the vision of the authors," the Ministry stated.
