Georgian FM: Russia has violated the border

2012-07-17 14:09

Georgian Foreign Ministry protests against the visit of the RF Chief of Ground Forces, Colonel-General Vladimir Chirkin in Abkhazia and South Ossetia on July 11-13, 2012, and qualifies it as "violation of the state border of Georgia", the RBC reported.


In a statement, the Georgian Foreign Ministry says, "Russia continues intensive militarization of the occupied territories of Georgia, re-arming troops, deployed there, with modern military equipment, including placing offensive missile weapons and forming offensive military groups".

Tbilisi declares all these Russia's actions pose an imminent military threat to peace and stability in Georgia and the Black Sea region as a whole. It is becoming increasingly clear that the Russian authorities "have nothing to offer the Caucasus, except for criminal and mafia rule and militarization".

Recall, earlier, Georgia has admitted "idiotic" the practice, under which foreign citizens are punishable in Georgia, if it becomes known that they had previously visited Abkhazia or South Ossetia without the permission of the Georgian authorities. According to the Echo Moskvy, this was announced by the Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze.

Trying to justify this practice Grigol Vashadze at first said "the law is harsh, but it's the law". He noted that the Russians can bypass the law if want: not to put records about a trip to Abkhazia in passport to visit Georgia without any obstacles.

But then Vashadze criticized the situation. "We are forced to do this idiocy instead of welcoming with open arms", he said.
