Georgian Foreign Ministry: Russian Air Forces have violated the airspace of Sakartvelo. 21775.jpegThe Georgian Foreign Ministry has spread an urgent message. As reported by Trend, the document argues that three Russian military helicopter "MI-8" have violated the Georgian airspace.

The incident occurred on September 7 at 13:05 local time near the mountain village of Shatili in the gorge Thani. Russian helicopters, according to Georgian Foreign Ministry, have gone deep into the territory of Georgia three kilometers. They were in Georgian airspace for 15 minutes.

"These actions were aimed at provoking an adequate response from the Georgian side but the Georgian side remains committed to the principle of non-renewal of the war and showed restraint in this case" - said the Georgian Foreign Ministry in a statement.

Recall, a new round of tension in Georgian-Russian relations has recently emerged in connection with the problems associated with the functioning of the Consular Service Section of Georgia's interests in Russia, as well as the issue of putting the former guest house "Tbilisi" at the Georgian embassy in Skatertny lane in Moscow up for the auction.


As stated recently by the deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia David Jalagania, Georgia has not yet made a decision to recall its diplomats from Moscow, as well as on the expulsion of representatives of Russian Interests Section at the Swiss embassy in Tbilisi. Thus Georgian official commented on the message of the newspaper "Kommersant", which suggested that Georgia might withdraw its consular officials from Moscow, as well as to expel Russian diplomats working in Tbilisi as a section at the Swiss Embassy in response to the tensions emerged between the countries on the foregoing buildings in Moscow.

"It's just a suggestion of the Russian media. The Georgian side has not made such decision" - explained Jalagania to reporters.
