December 1, 2008
Koba Sergia, commander of the battalion # 41 within under Brigade # 4 of the Georgian armed forces was killed during the August Georgian-Russian war.. He was killed on August 9, 2008 during military operations near the village of Nikozi, South Ossetia. His relatives have been looking for him for 3 months. It was learned that Sergia was one of those soldiers who were buried on Mukhatgverdi Cemetery of Unknown Soldiers. The soldier 27/27 was identified only after a conclusive DNA test was conducted. He left two young sons behind and a grieving wife. His wife does not appreciate that the lost of her husband is rewarded by the government a mere 65 – the value of a fallen Georgian hero.
