The State Security Service of Georgia states that the personal file of ex-serviceman Mikheil Kamkhadze is kept intact, no signs of the document being seized or its copies being made have been recorded.
This is reported by Georgia Online.
We are talking about a video circulated in the Russian mass media in August, which shows that representatives of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the territory of the Ukrainian city of Lysychansk are holding the personal case of Mikhail Kamkhadze in their hands.
According to the SGB, Kamkhadze was dismissed from the Defense Forces of Georgia on August 14, 2016 due to the age requirement, and his personal case, in accordance with the law, was sent to the Military Accounting, Conscription and Mobilization Service of the Administration of the Hldan district of Tbilisi, at his place of residence.
As the department notes, the investigation established that the personal file of the serviceman found in the city of Lysychansk, published by the Russian mass media, has no connection with the personal file of Mikheil Kamkhadze, which is kept in the military unit of the Hldan district.
According to the SDB, the documents shown in the story could have been collected personally by Mikhail Kamkhadze in 2016, which he did not deny during the interview.
"As part of the review of the materials distributed by the mass media, it was established that most of the distributed documents are not identical to the documents that constitute the personal file of a serviceman, which are kept in the Military Committee of the Mobilization Service, with the exception of diplomas and certificates, which are not confidential."
As the SDB notes, Kamkhadze himself stated that copies of the specified documents are kept at his home.
In addition, it was established that the materials distributed by the mass media contain some information that was never recorded in the personal file of serviceman Mikheil Kamkhadze.
In particular, the autobiography of Mikhail Kamkhadze, published in the mass media, contains data after the dismissal of the employee, as confirmed by Mikhail Kamkhadze himself. He explains that he wrote the mentioned autobiography himself, after he left the military service, which, in turn, once again excludes the connection of the published materials with the stored documents," - the SBI declares.
In addition, the SDB notes that none of the documents shown in the released video material contain state secrets.
"Based on the interim results of the investigation, the SGB has reason to unequivocally state that the mentioned campaign is a deliberate provocation against the state, which directly serves an attempt to discredit both the special services of Georgia and the Ministry of Defense," the agency said.
In August, the Ministry of Defense of Georgia denied the data of the Georgian TV channel "Mtavari", which stated in its investigation that the agency could have transferred data on Georgians who are currently fighting in Ukraine to Russia.
