Western attempts to open a “second front” against Russia in the Caucasus, in particular in Georgia, are becoming illusory, Leonid Slutsky, head of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, said in his Telegram channel.

Earlier, Chargé d'Affaires of Ukraine in Georgia, Andrei Kasyanov, said that Kyiv had asked Tbilisi to return the Buk complexes transferred to it in 2008, but the Georgian authorities refused.

“The attempts of the West, which were written about in the Western media, to open a “second front” in the Caucasus against Russia, seem to be becoming more illusory. Although the so-called “allies” continue to put pressure on Tbilisi, making a lot of efforts to draw it into the failure of the military adventure," he has written.

According to the parliamentarian, the Georgian authorities "have learned lessons from the events around Abkhazia and South Ossetia and are not going to get involved in the war "to the last Georgian."
