Russia Warns Against ‘Rearming Georgia’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 23 Jul.'09 / 13:54

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Grigory Karasin, said in an interview with Itar-Tass news agency Moscow “will continue to prevent the rearming of Saakashvilis regime and will take concrete measures against this.”

In January, 2009 Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, ordered the government “either to restrict or cut military-technical and military-economic cooperation” with countries providing Russian or Soviet made or designed weapons to Georgia.

Karasin also said that some countries, which he did not named, were hiding military cooperation with Georgia “under the guise of humanitarian aid.”

“We are deeply concerned about the activity of the Georgian leadership aimed at remilitarizing its country, which several states are responding to in a surprisingly calm and positive way,” Karasin said.
