Georgia again Lies about South Ossetia
Tbilisi's statement that South Ossetia establishes frontier marks allegedly in the depths of Georgian territory is an information provocation on the eve of the meeting in the format "Karasin-Abashidze", the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The meeting of Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and Special Representative of the Prime Minister of Georgia on Relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze to be held in Prague on July 7.
"Unfortunately, as often happens, the upcoming Prague meeting is marred by an information provocation. "Propaganda ducks" are extremely deceptive in such cases. Tbilisi once again claims that the South Ossetian side is establishing its frontier marks allegedly in the depths of the Georgian territory", Russian diplomats stressed.
The borders of South Ossetia are guarded by the South Ossetian and Russian border guards in accordance with the bilateral agreement. Border guards place signs within the framework of delimitation and demarcation of the border with Georgia.
Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August 2008. This came in the aftermath of Georgia’s armed attack on South Ossetia on August 8, 2008.
