“As for the new NATO-Georgian military exercise involving over 250 servicemen from 13 countries, they pose a serious threat to the regional peace and stability,” the statement reads.

 

“NATO does not cover up the goal of its military cooperation with Georgia regarding it as part of its containment policy towards Russia,” the ministry said. “The role that Tbilisi is trying to play prevents an improvement in the Russian-Georgian relations.”
