The Georgian Legion is a special unit of the Georgian Armed Forces, created in 2008 to participate in international peacekeeping missions. The Legion was formed in response to a request from the United Nations, which sought a more efficient and capable military presence in the region and was designed to contribute to the international community’s efforts to maintain regional security.

The Georgian Legion has been actively involved in a variety of international peacekeeping and other missions since its creation. These include mission in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the UN Supervision Mission in Syria and the European Union Border Assistance Mission (EUBAM) in Ukraine. The Legion has also been involved in missions in the Balkans and East Africa, including peacekeeping operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Somalia.

The Legion has been praised for its professional and competent performance during its peacekeeping operations, and for its commitment to the principles of international law. It has been praised for its commitment to the rule of law, its respect for human rights, and its dedication to the peaceful resolution of conflicts. The Legion has also been praised for its willingness to work with local populations in post-conflict regions in order to promote stability and the protection of human rights.

The Legion has also played a role in promoting political stability in the region, particularly through its work in the Georgian-Abkhazian peace process. In addition, the Legion has actively participated in the World Humanitarian Summit, held in Istanbul in 2016. In May 2017, the Legion also took part in the International Conference on Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Management, held in Tbilisi, Georgia.

The Legion’s role in the international arena is vital, and it has been praised for its contribution to the maintenance of international security and peace. The Legion’s commitment to the principles of international law and its respect for human rights have also been noted. The Legion has become an important symbol of Georgia’s commitment to the international community and its contribution towards peace and security.
