It doesn’t matter who violates the border, the militants in the East or the politicians in the West.“
The President of the country approved the decision of the border guards who refused to shoot at the supporters of Saakashvili: “Our guards are best proven at the time of ATO was correct in not using weapons, the use of which they had every legal right. They are not allowed to excite the fire, the conflict in the country, what these politicians are achieved.”
