The Border Service of the State Security Committee of the Republic of South Ossetia, as part of the program of delimitation and demarcation of the state border of South Ossetia with Georgia, unilaterally continued planned work to demarcation line between the states on the ground, the committee’s press service reports.

“In particular, in the border strip east of the settlement. Uista (Tsnelis) of Znaur district of South Ossetia in the direction of the  Atotsi village of the Khashur  municipality in order to prevent illegal border crossing the KGB Border Guard constructed a barrier, ”the department said.

It has been noted that the KGB of South Ossetia draws attention to the fact that these activities are carried out unilaterally by the South Ossetian side in connection with the fundamental refusal of Tbilisi to participate in the work on designating the border line between South Ossetia and Georgia.

“The unconstructive position of the Tbilisi regime leads to increased tension, the formation of various security threats not only for citizens of South Ossetia, but also for Georgia living in the border region, as well as the activation of various “public figures” using cross-border issues for self-PR and the accumulation of political capital. So, October 19 this year leader of the so-called the "anti-occupation movement" "Strength in Unity" D. Katsarava in his usual theatrical manner tried to interfere with the work of the South Ossetian border guards, while accusing the police and the Georgian leadership of the «collaborating and aiding the Kremlin." After that, the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs, using force, isolated him and placed him “under house arrest,”” the press service said.

At the same time, as the agency added, “the mission of the EU observers, as usual, recorded “successful actions by the Georgian security forces” and their own contribution to “the cause of maintaining stability and security in the region”.

“At the same time, there is no doubt that the actions of D. Katsarava, Georgian police and the EU observer mission are coordinated and pre-planned in order to achieve specific political goals, as well as to impose on the Georgian population and representatives of the international community an opinion on supposedly commitment of the Georgian side to peace and stability, ”the press service emphasized.

The KGB of the RSO has noted that de-escalation of tension resulting from the aggressive actions of the official Tbilisi and its Western curators is possible only if South Ossetia and Georgia sign the “Agreement on the non-use of force or the threat of its use”, and the creation of an interstate bilateral commission on delimitation and demarcation of the state border and building civilized interstate relations with South Ossetia.
