On June, 29, 2011 the United Nations General Assembly has adopted the resolution «Position of internally displaced persons and refugees from Abkhazia, Georgia, and Tskhinvalskiy region /South Ossetia, Georgia» Unfortunately, in this draft resolution, submitted by Georgia, only the unilateral politicized approach is represented having nothing in common with an actual state of affairs and with concern about the fate of the refugees One could see only aspiration of Georgia to support its claims on the sovereignty over the territory of South Ossetia and Abkhazia The resolution does not consider at all the situation which has really developed in the region, namely –the existence of two independent states- the Republic of South Ossetia and the Republic of Abkhazia-, recognized by a number of the countries -the members of the United Nations. Again the question was being discussed without the representatives of South Ossetia and Abkhazia who would be able to deliver the states` position in resolving of this important humanitarian problem to the United Nations General Assembly. However the US authorities have once again refused visas to the representatives of South Ossetia. It has caused regret that the countries which voted for the resolution have supported the ambitions of the Georgian leadership.
