As recalled by the Lenta.ru, the law on Occupied Territories of Georgia was adopted in the fall of 2008, after the military conflict in South Ossetia and the official recognition of the Republic's independence (as well as Abkhazia's) by Russia. The document defines these regions as "Russian-occupied" and establishes a number of limitations. They relate, in particular, to the economic activities in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as international transport.
