"It's very important the document of European Parliament highlights - the territories of Georgia are now in "occupied state," stared Salome Samadashvili, ambasador to the EU.
Russia recognized independency of South Ossetia and Abkhazia after the 5-day military aggression from the side of Georgia in August 2008. To stop aggression Russia conducted a peace enforcement operation. Tskhinval was fully destroyed, over 200 civilians and peacemakers were killed.
The Russian side believes it fully implemented all the points of Medvedev-Sarkozy plan.
In November 2008 Dmitry Medvedev, the President of Russia, said the decision to recognize the two regions was forced, and Russia would build full-fledged relations with these subjects of international law.
