"My youngest, 8-year-old daughter was physically insulted in front of the house. Despite the fact that I have bodyguards, and I am not a weak person, I realize that a pretty simple question may arise: either I shoot at anyone or someone shoots at my family. That's why I made this decision", Shashkin, who currently lives with his family in Maryland, said.
Recall, in late October, former Georgian Defense Minister Dmitri Shashkin confirmed that he has left the country.
On his page on Facebook Shashkin has posted an appeal to "the officers, sergeants, corporals, soldiers, friends and colleagues", in which he wrote that he had left the country with the hope to return in order to again serve his country.
"On October 1, Georgian people made their choice and I respect this choice. But I have different from the new majority values. I worked in the government of president Saakashvili, since I shared his ideals and ideas. Our government was united by an idea, not a pragmatic calculation. We believe that the money is not important, and you can achieve everything through the labour and the idea", Shashkin wrote.
