Today the US Embassy Office of Defense Cooperation in partnership with the Ministry of Defense of Georgia, Golden West, and Delta completed phase one of the ammunition storage infrastructure upgrades for the Georgian Defense Forces. This 1.5 million USD project included the renovation of the explosive storehouse, two utility vehicles, one telehandler, a perimeter fence, and additional security equipment. This is part of a larger humanitarian effort by US EUCOM to ensure the safe storage of munitions and mitigate the risk of an uncontrolled detonation that could threaten Georgian civilians.
