Georgia’s Foreign Office considers events in Orsantia village an act of provocation2009-01-09 12:40
Georgia's Foreign Office accuses Russia and Abkhazia of attempt to provoke the Georgian side and aggravate the situation in the region. This is the account of January 8 incident in Orsantia village by the Foreign Ministry. In Abkhazia this fact is contradicted.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to the information of the Georgian side this village was intensely shelled from automatic grenade launchers from Otobaya village of Abkhazia's Galsky district, the territory controlled by the Russian troops.
"The shells fell in the yard of a local resident. Only by good fortune nobody was injured as a result of this terrorist attack", - the Foreign Ministry states emphasizing that these incidents in villages close to Georgia's administrative border and its breakaway territories are regular: once in a several days by the same plan.
In order to prevent such developments Georgia demands extension of the international monitoring mission's mandate to the whole territory of the country.
Abkhazia in its turn has disproved the information on shelling of the village in Georgia's Zugdidi district. According to the head of Galsky district interior department of Abkhazia Lawrence Kogonia the rumors of shelling are "another fabrication" by Georgia.
"I don't know what this information is based on as nobody shot in the direction of Georgia from Abkhazia and nobody is going to do that. From time to time the Georgians disseminate similar information", - Kogonia stated.
