Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on the withdrawal of the Russian armed forces from the occupied village of Perevi

On 18 October, 2010 the Russian Federation withdrew its armed forces from the occupied village of Sachkhere district - Perevi. The Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of Georgia views such action as a step made in the right direction. The de-occupation of each village is of outmost importance for Georgia and especially for the population residing in those villages. However, it should be emphasized that the withdrawal of Russian occupational forces from Perevi is just a miniscule step in comparison with commitments envisaged by the ceasefire agreement of 12 August 2008 which Russia still has to comply with.

The Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of Georgia would like to once again remind the international community that Russia continues to brutally violate the ceasefire agreement of 12 August 2008. The Russian Federation still occupies 20% of the territory of Georgia, where several military bases and more than ten thousand Russian troops continue to be stationed. The facts of human rights violations still occur in the occupied regions; hundreds of thousand refugees and internally displaced persons lack the possibility of safe and dignified return to the places of their residence. Moreover, the Russian Federation still blocks the international presence on the ground, including the EUMM.

The Georgian side once again calls upon Russia to respect the principles of International Law, comply with all provisions of the six-point ceasefire agreement and fully de-occupy the Georgian regions of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia.
