February 15 - The Day of Withdrawal of Soviet Troops from Afghanistan
“February 15 is the day of withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. On this occasion, together with Afghanistan War veterans, we laid a wreath on the memorial of the victims, in Kutaisi. Georgian soldiers have always been distinguished for their high morale and combat performance. Georgian fighters are still in the hotspots of the world, protecting peace within the peacekeeping missions and fighting terrorism. Contribution of every one of them is great and invaluable. I will once again express my respect towards each soldier” - Shavlego Tabatadze.
