The sixth technical meeting of representatives of South Ossetia and Georgia in the format of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanisms (IPRM) has been completed, the parties did not come to a compromise on the situation on the state border on the removal of the illegal Georgian roadblock near the village of Uista (Tsnelis) in Znaur district of South Ossetia, told reporters, the head of the South Ossetian delegation, Yegor Kochiev.

Negotiations in the IPRM format will continue in the near future, Kochiev said, adding that "there is an understanding of the parties that the issue should be resolved exclusively by peaceful means."

Earlier, the KGB of the Republic announced the preparation of the power structures of Georgia for large-scale provocation on the section of the state border in the Tsnelis region. As part of ongoing security measures on the state border with Georgia, the border guards record that Georgian law enforcement and special services are actively pursuing a policy of systemic provocations.

"They deliberately misinform their population, the central Georgian government, as well as representatives of European structures regarding the situation in the area of ​​the village of Uista (Tsnelis)," the KGB said in a media statement on Thursday evening.

The Border guards on the state border recorded a number of violations.

"The following facts were documented by the KGB of the Republic of KGB: on October 23, at 13.15, another violation of the airspace of the Republic was committed. A Georgian military drone at an altitude of 700-800 meters, entered the airspace of South Ossetia from the village of Koda, the Khashur municipality and penetrated into the territory for several kilometers , another fact - on October 24, South Ossetian border guards detained a group of representatives of the EU observer mission in the vicinity of the village of Uista, Znaur district., During a preventive conversation these state border violators admitted that they allegedly accidentally ended up in South Ossetia because they “lost their orientation and got lost.” However, they were all equipped with the latest navigation devices, surveillance and radio communications, photo and video equipment, «reports the KGB.

“As for the roadblock of the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs in the vicinity of the village of Uista (Tsnelis), it has now been turned into a full-fledged strong point used for organizing and carrying out subversive actions. At the same time, the Georgian population is stubbornly suggested that the Georgian checkpoint is in the village of Chorchana of Khashur municipality, "the report said.

The KGB of South Ossetia once again emphasizes that in reality the stronghold of the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs, being at a dominant height, almost hangs over the South Ossetian village of Uista (200-300m), creating a threat to the security of the citizens of South Ossetia, as well as the citizens of Georgia living in the adjacent territory.

It should be reminded that the situation on the border of South Ossetia with Georgia escalated in late August. Tskhinval reported on the appearance on August 23 in the vicinity of the village of Uista (Tsnelis) of Znaur region of the Republic the illegal Georgian roadblock and demanded that Georgia remove the post. In Tbilisi, this was refused. The situation on the border was repeatedly discussed at the technical meetings in the format of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanisms (IPRM), but the parties failed to reach an agreement.
