Georgian police should immediately leave the borders of the village of Tsnelis of South Ossetia, said Zaza Driaev, head of the South Ossetian Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Policy and Inter-Parliamentary Relations.

According to the deputy, it is necessary to warn the Georgian side about the inadmissibility of such steps and give them time to go beyond the borders of South Ossetia, and then post there.

"It will be fair if we set up our posts where the border of the South Ossetian Autonomous Region previously ran," Driaev said.

He has focused on to the fact that military exercises of NATO countries have become more frequent in Georgia in recent years, in addition, demarches near the South Ossetian border are repeatedly arranged – this causes concern and caution.

"Even if there is a small firefight, it will again lead to conflict and aggravation of the situation, which undoubtedly threatens security in the Transcaucasian region," the deputy said.

The State Security Committee of South Ossetia reports on the ongoing provocations on the state border between the Republic of South Ossetia and Georgia.

In particular, in the border strip, in the vicinity of the village of Uista (formerly Tsnelis) in Znaur district of the Republic, the Georgian side is building a checkpoint guarded by Georgian security forces.

It should be reminded that on August 24 of this year, in the vicinity of the village of Tsnelis in Znaur district of South Ossetia, Georgian security forces cut down a forest and led a road, put up a post and a Georgian flag, thereby violating the state border. And on August 25, in the vicinity of Sinagur village in Dzau district it was continued a construction of a site for equipping Georgian police facilities.
