Russian military aircraft drop fire-setting bombs in Borjomi woods

Russian occupation troops continue to wage their barbaric war against Georgia. Russian military aircraft have dropped fire-setting bombs in the woods of the Borjomi district. Fire has now spread over 40 hectares of wood. Populated areas are also under threat. Unique ecosystem of the Borjomi gorge is being destroyed.

The Georgian Authorities are actively barred by Russian occupation troops from employing the means at their disposal or provided by friend countries to eliminate fire.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia calls on the international community and international ecological organizations to adopt all measures necessary to prevent Russian occupation troops from causing ecological catastrophe in Georgia.
