Today's statement of the mission refutes these messages - ITAR TASS..
"The unarmed, civilian EU Mission has agreements with both the Georgian Interior and Defence Ministries to limit the movement and equipment levels of the Georgian Forces in the areas adjacent to the South Ossetian and Abkhazian ABLs without prior notification.", the document claims.
"To reduce tension and bring about greater stability and security in the areas adjacent to the South Ossetian ABL, the de facto South Ossetian authorities and Russian Forces should reciprocate these agreements. There will only be stability if all sides contribute to it," the statement claims. On January 26th the EUMM and the Ministry of Defense of Georgia signed a Memorandum of Understanding. This document implies limitation of the heavy military machinery of the Ministry of Defense of Georgia near the administrative borders of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The Ministry agreed to deploy more than one battalion, over 120-mm caliber weapons and more than five military systems or 60-199mm caliber military machinery 15 kilometers away from the administrative borders.
