10989.jpegGeorgian MIA is so far unaware of Russia's military presence increase in Tskhinval, Novosti-Georgia reports. This was stated by Georgian Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze during a briefing on Monday.


"Georgian Foreign Ministry possesses no information on the increase of military presence in this region. According to Russian media, the point at issue is the on-site rotation. However, any actions that are not agreed with the Georgian authorities are considered a violation, especially when performed by occupation force", - Kalandadze stated.

She again accused Russia of breaking agreements. "Such actions in the region are at least a gross violation of the cease-fire agreement signed on 12 August 2008. This also means breaching all the international documents protecting the state's sovereignty and borders", - Kalandadze said.

As was reported earlier, a rocket artillery squadron of the RF Air Forces including the Smerch valley fire systems had been located in South Ossetia near Tskhinval. It is reported that one of the main reasons of locating the valley fire systems is "preventing possible aggression on Georgia's part".

The Smerch valley fire system is considered to be one of the most powerful in the world, with the maximum range of fire about 70-90 kilometers.

Let us remind you that according to the agreements signed between Moscow and Tskhinval, a Russian military base was located in the territory of South Ossetia. Similar agreements were signed between Russia and Abkhazia.
