For a year after the august events of 2008 Russian military recorded over 120 provocations against South Ossetia and Abkhazia, said today Anatoliy Nagovitsin, the deputy Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia.


Over 50 against Abkhazia, over 70 against South Ossetia, he explained - RIA Novosti.

Russia cannot rule out new Tbilisi's provocations on the threshold of August events anniversary. The situation in the region is very tense.

At night of July 30th from the Georgian side 3 mortar shots were fired at the suburb of Tskhinval. On August 1st - two mortar shots from the Georgian side at the monitoring post of the South Ossetian Ministry of Defense. On August 3rd - firing from Plavi [Georgia] at Otrev [South Ossetia].

The Georgian side strongly denies possibility of firing from its side and claims the shots came from South Ossetian side.

To avoid new provocations and penetration of the swine flu, South Ossetia closed the border with Georgia at midnight. This decision was made at yesterday's sitting of the South Ossetian leader Eduard Kokoyty with leaders of security, law enforcement and defense structures.
