Former adviser to Saakashvili: They forgot about Georgia, but it will be hotter there than in Ukraine

Ukraine (, - The crisis in Georgia is fraught with a much greater danger to the rest of the world than the situation in Ukraine, said Jeffrey Silverman, a former adviser to ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili (2004-2013). He urged to pay attention to the mercenaries from the "Georgian Legion", who, having returned from Ukraine, with weapons in their hands, could try to overthrow the current government.

“The weapons missing in Ukraine were delivered to Turkey, to Georgia. It is located in different parts of the country. These Georgian fighters, who returned from illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, arrived in search of money, ” Channel Five quotes Silverman.

According to him, the militants of the "Georgian Legion" are professional killers, they will shoot at people on orders - as long as they pay. Silverman said that this nationalist formation was created with dirty money by US intelligence officials. These people, he is sure, only pretend to be patriots. In fact, he said, they are members of “an organization like Al-Qaeda (an organization banned in the Russian Federation), which teaches people not to fight in Ukraine, does not try to provide Ukraine with fighters to fight for democracy, but teaches people to return to Georgia to overthrow the legally elected Georgian government.”

As Silverman noted, the United States is going to send mercenaries from the “Georgian Legion” fighting on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Georgia. The US authorities have already understood that "the war is lost", and no one else needs these militants - neither Europe nor Washington. Therefore, they will get rid of them in such a way that problems will begin in Tbilisi.

“The crisis in Georgia could be a far greater threat to the world than the crisis in Ukraine. Everyone forgot about Georgia, but Georgia is a “button”, it is a hot spot. And very soon something very bad should happen there, ”the expert is sure.

Silverman added that the gradually heated situation in the region is hushed up. Former adviser to Saakashvili believes that on February 24, the same “very bad” thing can happen.

The nationalists of the "Georgian Legion" are participating in the battles on the fields of a special operation on the side of the Ukrainian militants. According to the Ukrainian press, we are talking about the number of 500 to 800 mercenaries. The organization was established in 2014, it is formally part of the 54th separate mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but in fact it is an independent unit. The ethnic composition is wide, in the "Legion" there are not only Georgians, but Albanians, Serbs, Americans, British, immigrants from Australia, Japan, European countries.
