Russia rejects accusations of PACE in build-up of its military presence in the area of Georgian-South Ossetian conflict, stated today in the course of the Assembly meeting Leonid Slutskiy the deputy head pf the Russian delegation, Russian MP - Regnum.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Slutskiy, Russia supports the people of south Ossetia and protects it from further Georgian invasions- in the first line, on Ossetians' request.
He said that the Russian side implemented all the points of the cease-fire agreement and campaigns for searching the way of peaceful settlement in the region. He underlined that Russia perceives Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states, and won't annul the recognition.
The deputy head of the Russian delegation believes that PACE shouldn't discuss who was right and who was wrong in August 2008, but to focus on humanitarian aspects of the problem. In his view, to think how to help people is the main role of the Council of Europe.
The head of the Russian delegation, MP Konstantin Kosachyov reminded that one of the basic promises of Georgia, when admitted to the Council of Europe, was peaceful settlement in Abkhazia and South Ossetia; and said that President Saakashvili violated that promise.
