Indeed. It says "Soviet Georgia".

A great quantity of Soviet aircraft ( including the LaGG3 ) were constructed in Georgia at the good old 31st aviation factory, now Tbilisi Aircraft Manufacturing.
It's the same plant that later built most of the (in)famous Su-25 that exist(ed) and is currently equipping the modern Georgian military. Though mostly with ground vehicles. It is trying to revive that old capability though, with a modernised NATO configured variant of the Su-25.
