Border of Georgia with South Ossetia is closed for twenty-four hours
South Ossetian administrative border with Georgia was closed for twenty-four hours from the night of 26 August. As reported by agency Trend, this decision was made by the State Security Committee of South Ossetia.
"In connection with efforts to ensure the safety of celebrating the third anniversary of Russia's recognition of independence of South Ossetia, as well as to avoid aggravation of the situation at the border, the pass of the citizens through the state border of RSO with Georgia at checkpoints "Mosabruni", "Artsevi" and "Sinagur" was stopped for a day", - explained at the press service of the KGB of South Ossetia in an interview. The corresponding order was transferred to the Border management of FSB of Russia in South Ossetia.
Recall, August 23, Russian Foreign Ministry circulated information that the Georgian authorities intend to carry out a large-scale provocation in connection with the third anniversary of the recognition of independence of South Ossetia celebrated on August 26 - the so-called "peace march".
However, the Georgian Interior Ministry and later - the Georgian Foreign Ministry had denied this information. "The Georgian side has no plans for such actions and, therefore, there charges are absurd" - said at the Georgian Foreign Ministry.
"This information is untrue, and that is absurd. It is not clear who had distributed this information" - in turn, added the head of analytical department of the Georgian Interior Ministry Shota Utiashvili.
