Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia

September 25, 2012, President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili in his speech at the 67th session of the UN accused Russia of the "attempts to influence on political processes in Georgia, in particular, by conducting the large-scale maneuvers and concentrations of troops in the border" of the allegedly occupied regions of Georgia.

As always, the Georgian leadership is excessively dramatizing the situation. In addition to creating the myths of the past and the present in the Georgian-South Ossetian relations, Georgia regularly uses in its propaganda various conflict situations, interpreting them in its own interests and goals. The points of Tbilisi are often supported extensively in the West and then, unfortunately, sound in the statements of the high-ranking officials in Europe, the US and some international organizations.
The conclusions of the report of the independent EU commission, led by Ms. Heidi Taljavini, clearly have proved to the world that Georgia was the aggressor in August 2008, but the following permanent military preparations and the Georgian threats to "restore the territorial integrity", which has been repeatedly stressed by South Ossetia, unfortunately, are ignored by the world community.
The Georgian authorities make the statements about the South Ossetian "threat" to distract their own people from the complicated political situation in the country on the eve of the parliamentary elections, which unveiled a sadistic regime of the Georgian leadership under the mask of the democratic facade. For favorable resolving of the situation the official Tbilisi needs to find an external enemy.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia has declared with all responsibility that mobilization or accumulation of military forces is not taking place in the Republic. The Russian military units have been stationed in South Ossetia in accordance with the bilateral Russian-South Ossetian agreements. They are the only military forces in the territory of South Ossetia.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia once again is calling on the international community and the participants of the 67th session of the UN General Assembly to draw attention to the build-up of the Georgian military forces at the border of South Ossetia, which, as shows the contemporary history, is really dangerous and expresses the revanchist sentiments of the Georgian authorities , who prefer to see the problems of the region only in the light of their own interests, ignoring the reality.
