Georgia is concerned over Russian military exercises on Black Sea2013-04-01 13:52
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia has expressed "deep concern" over unexpected decision of the Russian president Vladimir Putin to start military exercises in the Russian Black Sea region, the RBC reported. Georgian Foreign Ministry stated that Tbilisi was "outraged at unexpected and provocative actions of the Russian military units" conducting maneuvers near the land and maritime borders of Georgia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The statement stresses that the Russian side has not spread any information about the duration of the exercises or the precise location of its armed forces, which is contrary to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 2011.
Meanwhile, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich, Georgia's statement on threats to regional stability in relation to the Russian military exercises on the Black Sea is far-fetched and does not correlate with the desire to normalize relations with Russia, the RIA Novosti reported.
According to Russian FM, "deep concern" of the Georgian side in connection with the military exercises has a contrived character. "This is particularly evident against the background of quite adequate response of the rest of the international community," said Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman.
Recall, president Vladimir Putin instructed the Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to begin the sudden large-scale exercises on Thursday, March 28, at 4 am.
