Irina Gagloeva: We call on the Government of Georgia to stop provocative game playing

The Republic of South Ossetia took no part in any advance into Georgian territory in Kveshi, and we support the Russian Federation’s denial of this unfounded allegation against its soldiers.
South Ossetians will commemorate the anniversary of Georgia’s brutal attack on our civilians in August of 2008. We aim to do this peacefully and respectfully and then move on to rebuild our country to take care of our people and their needs.

The Georgian MFA misinterpreted the actions of the RF Border-Guards

The RF FSB Border-Guard Department in the Republic of South Ossetia informs that on 1 August temporary entanglement has been in installed (1 m high poles) at the road from the village of Kveshi (Georgia) and Artsev (South Ossetia), to control the movement of vehicles across the borderline. These poles are not border-marking installations. The Georgian side was duly informed about these arrangements with a clear emphasis on the fact that they were not meant for border-marking. The Russian border-guards did not enter the village of Kveshi. The Georgian MFA's statement on the alleged border demarcation by the Russian border-guards is groundless and the purpose of the border-guards' actions was misinterpreted.
