"I strongly condemn this violence and send my condolences to the family of the police officer who was killed and wish those wounded a speedy recovery," said the Special Representative of the Greek Chairperson-in-Office of the OSCE, Ambassador Charalampos Christopoulos. "Such incidents are further raising tensions in an already fragile environment. They underscore the need to implement swiftly the incident prevention and response mechanisms which all parties agreed to at the last round of the Geneva discussions. They also underline the importance of the presence of the OSCE Military Observers who are able to monitor such incidents and credibly report on them." The Ambassador stated.

"OSCE Military Monitoring Officers were sent immediately to Dvani to ascertain details of this incident. The Georgian authorities are still investigating, but there seems little doubt that this was a deliberately targeted attack," said Christopoulos.

The Ministry of foreign affairs of Georgia spread the statement accusing Russia and South Ossetia in conducting terrorist acts. Tbilisi imposed responsibility for the incident on the Russian side.
