Gryzlov: Georgia doesn’t implement regulations of Medvedev-Sarkozy plan2009-01-19 12:36
Georgia doesn't fully implement regulations of Medvedev-Sarkozy plan on Georgian-South Ossetian conflict settlement, stated Boris Gryzlov, the Speaker of the Russian Parliament, at the meeting with PACE delegation, headed by Luis Maria de Puig, RIA Novosti informs, alluding to the department on public relations and cooperation with mass media of the State Duma.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The meeting was held yesterday evening; representatives of all fractions of the Duma participated.
Today PACE Presidential Committee will conduct a guest meeting in Moscow to examine implementation of October resolution on South Ossetia by Russia. In October the Assembly requested Russia to abrogate recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
That time PACE noticed that Russian side bears responsibility for the events occurred in South Ossetia. At the meeting Gryzlov reported of "constant build-up of Georgian presence in the areas adjacent to South Ossetia and Abkhazia, what doesn't favor keeping stability in the region" and "shooting incidents across the borders are provoked by the Georgian side".
The Speaker mentioned that for Russia the humanitarian issues are still of principal importance. He underlined that Russia provides people of the republics with necessary humanitarian aid. " At the same time we witnessed that Georgia, still supplied with Russian gas in accordance with previous agreements, made a decision to cut off gas supplies to South Ossetia", he said.
According to Gryzlov, these are actions of "evidently inhuman character". He also expressed bewilderment of Georgian "blocking of Russian TV channels and the Russian websites by Georgia." "I believe that this is not in line with the principle of free dissemination of information and democratic standard of freedom of speech, accepted in the Council of Europe" he said.
The next PACE session will be opened on January 26th.
