"Homeland is the highest value for which the heroes of Shindisi fought in 2008," the President of Georgia said in the statement.
"Readiness for devotion is our national spirit. This devotion has brought Georgia so far.
Respect for those who died for the homeland is passed down from generation to generation. The future of our country is built on the example of their self-sacrifice.
As Commander-in-Chief, I am proud to have such heroes, and I bow to their memory!" the President stated.
