The KGB of the Republic fixes the transfer of equipment and the rotation of the personnel of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia at the illegal strong point

The Georgian side, despite Tbilisi’s repeated assurances of its commitment to a peaceful and diplomatic settlement of the so-called “Tsnelis crisis,” inspired by the Georgian special services, continues to implement an irresponsible policy of petty provocations aimed at destabilizing the situation in the region, the KGB of the Republic said on Wednesday.

"The KGB Border Guard Service of the Republic records the transfer of equipment and rotation of the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs personnel at the illegal checkpoint put up in the area of ​​the village of Uista (Tsnelis). In addition, on November 5 at about 6 p.m. from the village of Kobe, the Khashur municipality, where additional Georgian police forces are deployed, 10-15 rounds of automatic weapons were shot by unidentified persons in the direction of the state border of the Republic of South Ossetia. There were no victims and damage to the border infrastructure, "the KGB press service said.

This incident once again demonstrates that the illegal post of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia in the area of ​​the village of Uista (Tsnelis) continues to be an urgent security threat not only for South Ossetia, but also for Georgian citizens of both Georgian and Ossetian nationalities living on the border territory neighboring state.

The State Security Committee of South Ossetia draws attention to the fact that the only and uncontested way to de-escalate tensions in the border region is to withdraw the illegall Georgian police post near the village of Uishta (Tsnelis).
