“The purpose of the exercises is to increase the level of interaction and interoperability between NATO ships and the Georgian Border Police,” the Georgian Interior Ministry said. It is noted that the exercises took place in accordance with the WHO recommendations for the prevention of coronavirus infection, the crews did not interact, joint meetings took place only remotely.

Recall that NATO has repeatedly stated that Georgia will not be able to enter the Alliance without resolving the issue with Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Otherwise, according to the fifth article of the NATO charter, after Georgia joins the Alliance must join the war with unrecognized republics.
