Valiko Beraia, Ruslan Meladze, Paata Kacharava

Three soldiers from the Republic of Georgia died on February 21, 2012, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

All three served in the 31st Light Infantry Battalion of the 3rd Infantry Brigade. 
Ruslan Meladze, age 21,
killed on February 21, 2012

Valiko Beraia, Ruslan Meladze and Paata Kacharava died when their combat vehicle exploded following an insurgent attack.

No other information about the men is available at this time. 

The Georgian Government described the deaths as a painful blow. 

Father, lead Valiko Beraia, Ruslan
Meladze and Paata Kacharava
to Heaven
The Republic of Georgia has over 900 troops supporting the NATO-led war in Afghanistan, including 750 in Helmand. Another deployment of 600-700 will be sent this year, making Georgia one of the largest non-NATO contributors in the war. 

The deaths bring to at least 15 the number of Georgian troops who have been killed while serving in Afghanistan. 

Pray for all Georgians who die in the line of duty. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Valiko Beraia, Ruslan Meladze and Paata Kacharava are in heaven. Let us pray that they are at peace and are with God. Amen
