Russia’s accusation that Georgia harbors militant groups is part of Moscow’s attempts to escalate tensions along the Georgian borders, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said on January 15.

“It is obvious that the Kremlin is seeking for a pretext to escalate the situation to a maximum at the borders of Georgia and create the background for carrying out military provocations against the sovereign country,” it said.

Russian Deputy Interior Minister Arkady Yedelev said on January 14 that “terrorist groups are trained at military bases in Georgia by foreign instructors to carry out terrorist acts on the territory of Russian Federation.”
