Description The aim of this article is to explain the presence of Georgian foreign fighters on both sides of the conflict in Ukraine and, using open sources, to map in the greatest possible detail their involvement in this conflict. Since this involvement has taken various forms and continues to do so, the author decided to split the main part of the article into three sections, in which he successively analyses the Georgian National Legion fighting on Ukraine’s side, the engage-ment of other Georgians on the Ukrainian side but outside theLegion, and the activities of Georgian foreign fighters who have sided with the pro-Russian separatists.
