Georgia will release four Russian military officers arrested on espionage charges, President Saakashvili said on October 2 after talks with visiting OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Belgian Foreign Minister Karel De Gucht.
“This case has been documented and has very strong legal evidence… We have some of the additional materials which we are handing over to the OSCE,” Saakashvili said.
He also said that Georgia has been hearing Russia’s “menace” about a possible military intervention “for months and years and in fact since Georgia’s independence in 1991.”
“The message of Georgia to our neighbor Russia is, enough is enough. We want to have a constructive dialogue with Russia, but we can not be treated as a second grade backyard,” Saakashvili said.
