Against the background of the escalation of the armed confrontation in the zone of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, the State Security Committee of the Republic of South Ossetia has recorded the "dangerous growth of extremist sentiments in Georgia, which in the conditions of the parliamentary elections scheduled for October 31, and the victory of radical forces from among the supporters of Mikhail Saakashvili, may cause another aggravation of relations between South Ossetia and Georgia."

"Thus, on October 4, in Tbilisi, near the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Georgia, a rally was held in support of official Baku and its military operation to "restore territorial integrity." Representatives of the Azerbaijani diaspora, students of the Georgian universities, as well as the outstanding Georgian politician Gubaz Sanikidze took part in the rally. ", - the KGB said in a statement on Thursday.

According to the Committee, in his speech G. Sanikidze said in particular: "Dear friends! Today we have gathered in support of Azerbaijan. Long live the unity of Georgia and Azerbaijan. Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan, as Abkhazia and Shida Kartli are historical territories of Georgia! The Georgian people will support the Azerbaijani people! We must liberate Armenia from the Russian occupation! Russian troops must not be in the Caucasus! Russia is an invader! Long live Georgia! "

According to the information available to the KGB, G. Sanikidze is a supporter of M. Saakashvili and the United National Movement party: "while earlier G. Sanikidze stated that he was ready to raise an armed uprising in the region of Racha-Lechkhumi and Lower Svaneti, bordering South Ossetia" ...

As noted by the Committee, the ruling Georgian Dream party is rapidly losing the support of the local population in the regions of Georgia bordering South Ossetia due to the low efficiency of social assistance measures taken, unwillingness to build equal interstate relations with South Ossetia, as well as failed attempts to implement the "Step into a better future ", aimed at the financial and economic absorption of the Republic.

“The result of the irresponsible policy of official Tbilisi was a sharp drop in the standard of living in Georgian villages located along the line of the RSO State Border with Georgia. So, some time ago, in the vicinity of Akhmadz, Leningor District, citizen M was detained for illegal border crossing. In December 2019, in search of a better life, she legally left for Georgia through the place of crossing the state border "Pereu". Arriving in Georgia, "M" hoped to find a high-paying job and stay in Georgia. After changing several jobs, "M" has realized that on the territory of Georgia immigrants from South Ossetia are treated as people of "third grade", they are oppressed, subjected to various ridicule and insults. As for the population of border villages and refugees, they experience problems with employment, are forced to live on meager benefits, and also experience an acute lack of attention from Tbilisi regime to their problems, "- the message says.

According to the Committee, earlier, in the vicinity of the settlement Artseu, Tskhinval district, for illegal border crossing was detained a citizen "K", who in May legally left for Georgia under the family reunification program implemented by the Tskhinval office of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

"However, due to the impossibility of employment and the lack of conditions for existence," K "was forced to make an attempt to illegally return to the territory of the Republic of South Ossetia. On September 27, in the area of ​​the settlement of Artseu, a resident of the settlement of Akhalubani was detained for illegal border crossing" E "who, due to the extremely low standard of living in the indicated Georgian border settlement, as well as the lack of employment opportunities, decided to violate border legislation in order to find better living conditions. At the same time, the reason for the transition in this particular case was the inaction of the Georgian Interior Ministry officers in the episode connected with an act of domestic violence against "E" by a close relative, "the message says.

Against this background, the special service gas noted, one can only positively assess the activities of a number of the Georgian NGOs and individual activists focused on collecting and bringing to the Georgian society truthful information about the situation on the South Ossetian-Georgian border and Georgian border territories.

"In particular, the NGO "Strength in unity" and its leader D. katsarava are a more or less effective force that tries to solve the problems of the Georgian population. So, on his initiative, the first 50 copies of GPS devices were purchased for the citizens of Georgia, which allow real-time monitoring of the location and movement routes of all potential violators of the state border of the RSO and Georgia," the report says.

The KGB of South Ossetia believes that the implementation of this project will significantly increase the effectiveness of the work of the South Ossetian border authorities in ensuring the security of the borders of the Republic.
