Italian journalist warned of dangerous situation on Georgian-South Ossetian border

2008-10-30 14:08

The situation on a Georgian-South Ossetian demarcation line is getting very dangerous, as it was mentioned in the open letter by Julietto Kieza, an Italian journalist and Europarlament MP, addressed to Italian Foreign Affairs Minister, Franco Frattini. The letter was written after Kiezo's visit to South Ossetia on October, 25-26th , informs RIA-Novosti.


In his letter he mentions that during his visit he didn't find European observers on the observation station South-east from Tskhinvali. There were no Russian troops near the demarcation line. "As a result, Georgian and South Ossetian forces stay in close contact, and may restart conflicts and provocations at any moment", - written in the letter. The journalist mentions that the present dangerous situation is a direct consequence of "Georgian act of aggression against South Ossetia at night of August 7th".

According to Kiez, in South Ossetia he gathered information of 11 men kidnapped by unknown armed groups. Many of them are young people. As the journalist found out, the kidnapped were drawn to Georgia. The latest cases occurred in recent two weeks.

The Italian journalist underlines that after the drawing of Russian troops from Georgian to South Ossetia territory, that the EU insisted on, it would be impossible to make Russia responsible for "what is likely to happen there". "Italy sent a group of observers that are the part of the European contingent, and, therefore, share the responsibility", - written in the letter. That's the reason why Kieza asks the Foreign Affairs Minister to give him data concerning mandates of the observers, their instructions and possible actions of Italian government in this situation. "I must repeat that this situation , especially in the light of President Saakashvili's dangerous claims, that point to the restart of combat actions, is like to get worse soon", - Kieza underlines. The Journalist adds that "in such conditions and present format the EU cannot guarantee the safety of the Georgian-South Ossetian border".
