"It is not by chance that the Georgian side has been recently organizing various provocations", stated the RSO President"s Plenipotentiary for Post-conflict Settlement Boris Chochiev. "We have learned Georgia"s provocative methods through these years and these provocations always happen right before some important meetings", said Chochiev. "We believe that Geneva talks are extremely important. We will be adopting the finalized mechanism for incident prevention. And it is clear, that this mechanism should have been agreed before to be able to rapidly react to these provocations.
