Normalization of relations between Georgia and Russia will definitely happen. That’s because always after a war comes peace, and after a conflict comes cooperation, Valery Chechelashvili, a leading Georgian expert, former Georgian Ambassador to Russia (2004-2005), said in an interview with the Georgian Bureau of Report.

He noted that it is important on what conditions and on what principles this will take place: “Here we are talking not only about relations between Russia and Georgia, but about the problems that Russia is facing. Russia has problems along the entire perimeter of its borders, but mainly on the Ukrainian-Russian border.”
