Russia no longer figures in Georgia's defense doctrine as the main source of danger, said Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili in an interview to Rustavi 2.
In the new military doctrine, as well as in the document adopted by the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Relations, the tone is softened. The Georgian government, unlike the previous one, has changed the rhetoric in relations with Russia, and will be as correct as possible. It is precisely because of this that it was possible to open the Russian market, Ivanishvili further noted.
"The beginning of restoring relationship with Russia is not bad. I do not have a sense of euphoria that in the nearest time we will be able to restore the country's territorial integrity, but for that end, in the coming years, we should establish truly democratic institutions," said the Georgian Prime Minister.
