Nothing but a routine working out of the anti-Russian theme" - the Foreign Minister of South Ossetia on the statement of the President of Georgia

South Ossetia commented on the statement of the Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili, who called the referendum in South Ossetia a provocation by the Russian Federation.

"As for the words addressed to Russia, this is nothing more than an on-duty working out of the anti-Russian theme in front of Georgia's overseas sponsors ...", - said the acting. Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic Dmitry Medoev to the agency "Res" by phone.

At the same time, Medoev drew attention to the passage about non-aggression against "Abkhazian and Ossetian citizens" of Georgia.

"It seems to be true. Citizens of the Ossetian nationality living in Georgia may not be bombarded by Georgian Bayraktars. However, if Ms. Zurabishvili had in mind South Ossetia or Abkhazia, then here, in the text of the speech, an obvious mistake crept into the choice of the addressee of this message, especially since that there are no citizens of Georgia in South Ossetia and this is well known," he stressed.

In this regard, according to him, one recalls the outstanding statement of one Georgian statesman, “said right before Saakashvili’s attack on South Ossetia in August 2008: “I swear by my mother, we are not going to fight” ...

"What can we expect from the same statement of Mrs. Zurabishvili this time?" Medoev said.
