Georgia will be forced to stop gas blockade of South Ossetia

2008-11-20 17:30

Members of OSCE should demand Georgia to stop gas blockade of South Ossetia immediately, stated today Anvar Azimov, Russian Permanent Representative in Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.


"We call OSCE Mission in Georgia to make every effort to settle the situation with gas pipeline blocking", - he said at the meeting of the Permanent Council.

During the events of August 2008 in South Ossetia, Georgia blocked the gas pipeline, crossing its territory, and in this way stopped gas supplies to the republic.

As there is no other ways to deliver gas to South Ossetia, the republic is cut off gas totally.

"Considering the coming winter, we have the situation that may turn into a humanitarian catastrophe ", - Azimov said.

"We regard actions of Tbilisi as an attempt to impose direct economic pressure on South Ossetia, in order to subordinate it to the interests of Georgia. It contradicts OSCE principles, fixed in the Helsinki Final Act", - he concluded.
