Georgian MIA has again stated that visiting Abkhazia and South Ossetia without the Georgian authorities' permission is an official crime.

It puts many employees of international humanitarian and non-governmental organizations working in South Ossetia in a strained situation.  If they come to the territory of the republic from the RF side they will get in prison in Georgia later on.

"Theoretically, I may cross the border between South Ossetia and Russia if I have an invitation from SO and a Russian visa but I won't be able to come to Georgia with a Russian stamp in the passport because they'll put me to prison - their law permits visiting the country only from the side of Gori", - says coordinator of the IKV PAX CHRISTI non-government organization Sinta Depondt.

Georgian authorities have many times arrested the citizens from the CIS countries and far-abroad countries who visited Georgia after their trips to Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
