"This fact makes their social position more complicated", - the statement of the Georgian Ministry disseminated on Tuesday says.
According to the data provided by the Georgian MIA, the villages of Kelktseuli, Zemo-Khvili, Kvemo-Khviti, Zemo-Nikozi, Ergneti, Tirdznisi, Ditsi, Arbo, Korda, Mereti, Zardiantkari, Koshka, Gugutiantkari, Kveshi, Kirbali, Gogeti, Atotsi and Zemo Sobisi are presently in a bad condition.
The administration officials underline that several times the Georgian party has reported the current problems to the RF Armed Forces and to Tskhinval officials via the European Union Observers Mission (EUOM) in Georgia; however, despite the demand of the Georgian party they "refuse to consider the problem and do not give the residents of the abovementioned villages an opportunity to till their land".
MIA of Georgia is calling upon the leaders of the RF Armed Forces and the officials of South Ossetia to stop preventing the population from "carrying on agricultural activities", as well as "to cut short the pressure upon the farmers and their intimidation".
