17.09.2008
Misha Khimshianshvili, 79 war and armed forces veteran requests some assistance. He is a physically disabled veteran who participated in the Great Patriotic War, 1941-1945, WWII, and he even received a medal for his heroism. Now he lives in a three square meter iron cubicle.

The veteran addressed the Agency for Social Subsidies for assistance. However, social agents did not acknowledge the iron booth as a permanent place of residence for the veteran and refused to consider his declaration as being family accommodation.

Misha Khimshiashvili who does not have his right arm does not have any other place to live. The veteran addressed the Gurjaani local government for assigning him an apartment in the house that is owned by the Gurjaani Local Government a week ago. However, no one from the local government has expressed any interest in his case.
