Statement of the Georgian Foreign Ministry in reaction to the military exercises launched by the Russian Federation in the occupied Tskhinvali region

On 15 July 2015, large-scale military exercises of the Russia's 58th army started at the military base of the Southern Military District, as well as in Georgia's occupied Tskhinvali region. More than 1500 artillery troops take part in the exercises involving the use of such modern weapons as 152-mm towed howitzer pieces: Akatsiya, Msta-С, Msta-B; Grad, Tornado-G and Uragan multiple launch rocket systems; Shturm-C anti-tank guided missile system; Sani and Podnos Mortars. A total of 300 air defence missile systems are used in the exercises.

This provocative act of the Russian Federation represents an infringement of Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity and a gross violation of the Georgian Constitution, norms and principles of international law, international commitments undertaken by Russia including under the Ceasefire Agreement of 12 August 2008, and poses a threat to peace and security in the region. The placement of banners by the so-called Russian border guards on the Georgian territory is also a serious cause for concern.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry expresses its extreme concern and demands from the Russian Federation to comply with its commitments, withdraw its troops from the territory of Georgia and de-occupy the Georgian regions.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry calls upon the international community to duly assess this aggressive action of Russia, adequately react to its yet another destructive move and prevent the activities aimed at the infringement of Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
