"Based on the report of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, on August 3, 2009 at 21:30 a Georgian police checkpoint located in the village of Plavismani came under fire from the Tskhinvali region currently under Russian occupation. The fire was presumably opened from a hand grenade launcher. Two shells exploded not far from the police checkpoint, one - in its immediate vicinity. The incident entailed no casualties.
Despite the Georgian side's repeated statements on the growing number of provocations and increased military rhetoric by Russia and the Tskhinvali proxy regime in connection with the forthcoming anniversary of Russia's aggression against Georgia, and though the international community, including the EU Monitoring Mission, EU Presidency and France called on the sides to refrain from provocations, the Russian occupants and the proxy regimes still continue to pursue their efforts aimed at further enhancement of the tension," the document says.
The Ministry reiterates that all the responsibility for these actions rests with Russia and urges the international community to give the due assessment to the incidents aimed to cause a deliberate escalation of tension.
