The authorities of Georgia have blocked the checkpoints on the boundary of South Ossetia and Georgia. As reported IA "Res" by the head of the Administration in Dzauskiy region of the RSO Pavel Kumaritov, .the roads near the settlements Sinagur and Karzman have been blocked. As he says, the Republic of South Ossetia, never made any obstacles for the dwellers of the border villages (mainly of the georgian nationality ),in visiting their relatives, proceeding from the principles of humanity and in spite of the unsettled conflict between the two countries - South Ossetia and Georgia, - in the interests of the peaceful population. The authorities of Georgia have been trying to use this fact in the course of many years, spreading the political agitation among the inhabitants of the Georgian nationality in the settlements Sinagur and Karzman to put them against South Ossetia. "However, - has noted Pavel Kumaritov, - several days ago a special detachment of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia from Kutaisi was suddenly brought into the territory neighboring to South Ossetia and the road turned out to be blocked. All the people making their way to Georgia returned back by force".

The official Tbilisi does not trust the georgians living in Leningorskiy region of the RSO

As it is well known, the disturbances, connected with the unwillingness of the Georgian people to see Mikhail Saakashvili being their president, are going on in Tbilisi, Batumi and in the other cities of Georgia. Saakashvili himself has prudently left the rebellious Tbilisi under pretence of the visit in Hungary. Meantime, the authorities of Georgia put pressure on the carriers finding various reasons (the lack of benzine, repair of a bus and etc) for limiting the suburban communication. But the villagers– on their transport, or on foot - are gathering in the cities. In this connection it deserves attention the fact that even being in agony the authorities of Georgia use discriminating methods towards the population of South Ossetia. So if the suburban communication in Georgia is being blocked on various pretexts, as if not related to the public disorders, the road from Leningorskiy region to Georgia has been blocked strictly without any explanations. But the situation is quite comprehensible for everybody. This outrageous fact testifies of the following. In spite of all assurances of comprehensive care and support of the Georgian inhabitants in Leningorskiy region of South Ossetia, the leadership of Georgia is feeling the extreme mistrust towards them. But if there is mistrust anywhere -there are also the reasons for mistrust. Really, the population of Leningorskiy region has not seen no care, no any attention to their problems on the part of Georgia during the twenty years of occupation.
