127 advisers from the US Department of Defense are working in Georgia, Valery Churkin, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, said at an extraordinary meeting of the UN Security Council in New York, which was initiated by the United States and Georgia. “I cannot name them, perhaps Georgia’s representative knows them,” Churkin noted. He said he was not surprised that the UN Security Council meeting had been initiated by the US and Georgia. “We all know about close ties between the presidents of the two countries,” he stressed.

Georgia unleashed its military campaign against South Ossetia on August 7, following the completion of a joint US-Georgian military exercise, in which 1,000 US military advisers took part, according to Churkin. The exercise was called “Immediate Response.” “Trained by their American colleagues, Georgian troops did just that, they responded immediately,” Churkin said. “When I speak about close relations between the United States and Georgia, I would not like to think that Washington gave the green light to the opportunistic actions of the Georgian leadership,” he remarked. Churkin said Russia was in contact with the United States, and this cooperation would be continued in order to restore peace in Georgia.
