I decided to congratulate you on this occasion from Kutaisi, from the Military Lyceum of General Giorgi Kvinitadze, as this Lyceum has a key importance as the crucial contributor to our country’s national security.I have made this decision also because of the 6th anniversary of the establishment of this Lyceum which coincides with another important occasion – the first time admittance of the female students to the Lyceum. From now on, Georgian women and men will stand side by side while defending their country.
I would like to tell this to everybody – Georgia is a powerful country. Georgia is a powerful country because of its past and its future.
Traditionally, and historically, Georgian women have always stood beside Georgian men and the prominent examples of this statement are Giorgi Kvinitadze and his co-fighter Maro Makashvili. ‘The lion's whelp is a lion, be it a male or a female’ – this saying is still relevant today.
I would like to congratulate to the new female students of the Lyceum and establish a scholarship for them, in memory of Giorgi Kvinitadze and Maro Makashvili. I hope this scholarship will attract more prospective female students and thus strengthen our country’s military service.
Once again, I would like to express my gratitude toward all students, professors, officers, and cadets, who are strengthening our country’s military service. The whole Georgian nation and I, personally, highly appreciate your merit. Thank you for your service. God bless you and the entire Georgia!” –stated the President.

The events include providing immediate psychological support, activating hot line service, conducting sport activities, holding seminars and lectures for the commanders at all level to be able to understand the moral-psychological condition of a soldier” said Ana Dolidze.
By the initiative of Minister of Defence of Georgia, vigorous measures are being implemented regarding prevention of suicide facts. A special booklet is prepared which will allow the sergeants and commanders to timely detect a fellow soldier needing help and to communicate with him in the right way. A hot line service was also activated and special seminars are planned for the commanders to develop necessary skills to timely prevent the facts of suicide. Psychological Selection and Monitoring Department of the MoD will be leading the seminars.
The event held in Kutaisi in the frames of the policy of mutual psychological support of military service members is only a part of the campaign “Shoulder to Shoulder”. Ministry of Defence will inform the society on the campaign on a regular basis.
