The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has once again reaffirmed its “unequivocal support” sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia, by issuing a special solution.
European politicians condemned “conducting military exercises and strengthening infrastructure” Russia in “occupied Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region of Georgia”. The decision emphasizes, that the presence of the Russian army in the occupied territories later 12 years after the armed conflict prevents a peaceful settlement in the region.
The committee called on Russia to implement the ceasefire agreement from 12 August 2008 years by “withdrawal of the armed and security forces from Georgian territory: Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region”.
Besides, European politicians once again accused Russia of violating human rights “in the occupied regions of Georgia”. Particular attention is paid to the introduction “crossing points” on the border with “occupied” Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region, because the, according to Europe, it has “severe humanitarian consequences”.
The Committee regretted, that his representatives were not allowed to “occupied” territory and demanded from Russia “immediately grant unlimited access to both regions”.
note, that Georgia still considers the territories of the republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia its, continuing to seek their return. At the same time, all the blame for what happened in Tbilisi is traditionally placed on Russia., ignoring the fact that Saakashvili ordered the start of hostilities in the region in August 2008 years and an attack on the Russian peacekeeping contingent.
