A statement disseminated by the Swedish EU presidency in Brussels reads "the European Union considers this visit as incompatible with the principle of territorial integrity and is concerned about its effects on the international efforts to stabilise the region".
The authors of the document reiterated the EU's support for Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity, - RIA Novosti reports.
Earlier a similar statement was promulgated by the US Department of State.
In reply the Kremlin called not to dramatize the Russian President's trip.
As Georgia Times wrote earlier, on July 13 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev made his first visit to South Ossetia that Moscow had recognized as independent in 2008 following Georgian military aggression last August.
The Russian leader promised the RF would continue to help reconstructing the republic, had a look at ruined buildings in Tskhinval and spoke to local people.
