2012-08-10 13:30

Georgian Foreign Ministry considers illegal the visit of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to Tshival, during the fourth anniversary of the war in August 2008, after which Moscow unilaterally recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the News-Georgia reported.


"August 8, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev illegally entered the territory of the sovereign state of Georgia, and visited the occupied Tskhinval region. This action violates the laws of Georgia, in particular, the law on the occupied territories", said in a statement by the Georgian Foreign Ministry.

At the same time, according to Georgian Foreign Ministry, "Russia is actually isolated in its decision on the recognition of the independence of two Georgian regions - Abkhazia and the Tskhinval region".

As recalled by the Vesti, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev arrived to South Ossetia on August 8, 2012. He met with President Leonid Tibilova and got acquainted with the work on rehabilitation of Tskhinval.

This Medvedev's visit coincided with the fourth anniversary of the war in August 2008. The mourning events dedicated to this event took place in Tskhinval. Residents and guests of South Ossetia gathered to honor the memory of the victims of the war. President of the Republic Leonid Tibilov, the Parliament deputies and members of the government also arrived to take part in the mourning events.
