A Georgian citizen who fled the country and violated the state border of South Ossetia has been handed over to the Georgian side on Saturday.

"On June 7 in the vicinity of the settlement of Artseu of the Tskhinval district, the border authorities of South Ossetia detained a citizen of Georgia Shulgaty Maksim Genoevich, born in 1980, a native of Tbilisi. for violating the state border regime that while living in Georgia, he was regularly subjected to persecution and harassment on the basis of ethnicity. In 2007, he was convicted of the distribution and use of drugs. After his release in 2012, it turned out that he had lost his parents and lost his home, "the KGB. message says.

The press service of the Committee has noted that, finding himself in a hopeless situation, Shulgaty several times unsuccessfully appealed to the Georgian authorities with a demand to recover monetary compensation from health workers, who, in his opinion, reacted negligently to the treatment of his parents on the basis of ethnic hatred, which entailed them death.

“Having realized that it was useless to appeal to official Tbilisi with such a question, MG Shulgaty wrote a letter to the Strasbourg court. Soon after that, officers of the special department of the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs took him into the forest, beat him and threatened him with physical violence. The fear for life and the lack of basic conditions for existence forced Shulgaty M. G. to commit an illegal act, commit a deliberate crossing of the border and appeal to the leadership of the RSO," the report says.

The KGB has emphasized that against the background of this, the position of international observers of the European Union (EU), who, being on the territory of Georgia, ignore the problem of discrimination against people on the basis of national origin, which has long been part of the state policy of the Tbilisi regime, causes particular bewilderment.

"Taking into account the fact that the detained Shulgaty MG violated the state border of South Ossetia with Georgia to use the right of political asylum, on June 12 this year he was handed over to the Georgian side without penalties," the press service reports.
