I would like to remind that so far the legally bounding document guaranteeing non-use of force by Georgia against South Ossetia foreseen by the Medvedev-Sarkozy agreements has not been signed, and today it is necessary to take into account the threats caused by remilitarization of Georgia and the revanchist plans of its authorities", underscored Chochiev.
