The President of Georgia thanked Belarusian rescuers for helping to extinguish the fires in the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park.

Giorgi Margvelashvili arrived to the place to see the situation himself.

Georgia’s Premier had also expressed gratitude to Belarus before in his official Twitter account.

Giorgi Kvirikashvili, Prime Minister of Georgia:
A helicopter from Belarus has been sent to the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park to fight the fire. Thank you for your support.

As many as nine rescuers are on board the helicopter of the Ministry of Emergencies. The crew was formed by order of Alexander Lukashenko. The authorities of Georgia asked for help, because the country has now fire aviation.

The fire in the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park has been burning for a couple of days now. The forces of Azerbaijan, Turkey and Armenia are involved in rendering aid as well. The main task for now is not to let the fire spread towards the settlements. There is less than one kilometer left till the nearest settlement.
