Today, April 6, the Georgian Foreign Ministry stated the country decided to terminate its obligations to the Russian Federation in the framework of the Treaty on Open Skies, the RIA Novosti reported.
It is noted that Georgia adopted this decision on 3 April and has already informed all parties of the Treaty.
"The Georgian side has taken this decision in response to a failure to comply with certain obligations on the part of Russia. In particular, since 2010, Russia aims to use the Treaty to legalize the independence of Georgian regions - Abkhazia and South Ossetia (Tskhinvali region)", the edition led the statement by Georgian Foreign Ministry.
Georgia's Foreign Ministry stressed that "Russia has no right to unilaterally change the geographical area and coverage area of a multilateral treaty through the recognition of new entities on the territory of another state member of the treaty".
Recall, the Treaty on Open Skies was signed in 1992 by the OSCE participating states. Its purpose, inter alia, is to monitor the implementation of agreements in the field of armaments. The agreement allows the parties to conduct observation flights over the territories of each other.
