Russia's GRU Chief Comments on Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 2 Nov.'11 / 13:14

Chief of Russia's military intelligence service (GRU), Alexander Shlyakhturov, said that Russia will respond “immediately” in case of “a new military provocation” from Georgia.

“With the use of intelligence capabilities, we are controlling situation in those regions from where an attack may be carried out against our country or military actions may be organized against Russia,” he said in an interview with the Russian state newspaper, Rossiiskaya Gazeta, published on November 2.

Asked if Georgia was among those regions, GRU chief responded: “It is well-known that Russian special services are very much unloved in Georgia. They are accused [by Georgia] of organizing subversive acts against the sovereign state. I can state with responsibility, that this is absolutely not true.”

“But they should know in Tbilisi, that in case of preparing a new military provocation against Russia and its allies in the region, GRU will timely inform about it the military-political leadership [of Russia]. Response will follow immediately,” Shlyakhturov said.
