At a briefing by the ruling party, Irakli Kobakhidze said that the country is ready to hold a referendum on Georgia’s entry into the war with Russia:
We can hold a poll, a plebiscite and ask the people if they want a second front to open in Georgia. We can follow what the people say.
Kobakhidze added that the Ukrainian authorities would be happy if the second front was opened and Georgia entered the war with Russia.
Russia has waged a hybrid war against Georgia for many years after the leaders of this country announced Georgia’s aspiration to join the European Union and chose a democratic liberal course of the country’s development.
The Kremlin did not like this, and as a result, a war was unleashed on the territory of Georgia in which the Abkhaz and South Ossetian separatists declared their desire to maintain a loyal status to the Russian regime.
Georgia has lost part of its territories – Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The latter as a result of the Russian-Georgian conflict in 2008.
Now Georgia has a unique chance to return the territories seized by pro-Russian separatists by starting military operations against Russian troops in the Caucasus.
