Leader Warns Against Alienating Russia

PRAGUE (AP) - The president of Georgia, a country whose territory was invaded by Russian troops in 2008, has warned Western countries against alienating Russia over the Ukraine crisis.

Giorgi Margvelashvili says Russia could become "even more aggressive, unpredictable and dangerous."

In an interview with The Associated Press in Prague on Friday, Margvelashvili said it should be clearly stated to Russia "that relations between neighbors or countries around the world aren't built through military interventions."

Georgia plans to sign a political association agreement with the EU in June to boost their ties. Ukraine did so on the same day Russian President Vladimir Putin signed parliamentary legislation incorporating Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula.

Russian forces crushed the Georgian army in a brief 2008 war over the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
