MFA statement on the 9th anniversary of Russia’s armed aggression against Georgia

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland is closely following the developments in the Abkhazia and Tskhinvali/South Ossetia region, which for the last nine years since Russia’s armed aggression against Georgia on 8 August 2008, has been ruled by separatist authorities established and supported by Moscow and not recognised by the international community.

We strongly oppose the militarization and the ‘borderization’ of the occupied territories, which are carried out with Russia’s active participation. We note with increasing concern the deteriorating humanitarian, economic and welfare situation of the inhabitants of the occupied part of Georgia, for which the Russian Federation and the de facto governing authorities in Sukhumi and Tskhinvali bear full responsibility. We call for an end to human rights violations such as imposing illegal regulations discriminating against Georgians living in the Abkhazia and Tskhinvali/South Ossetia region and depriving civilians of the right to move freely throughout the whole territory of Georgia.

The Polish MFA continues to uphold its position that in light of international law, Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali/South Ossetia region are an integral part of the independent State of Georgia. Any actions undertaken by the Russian Federation or the de facto authorities in Sukhumi and Tskhinvali on the territories of Georgia that are temporarily not controlled by Tbilisi without the permission of Georgian institutions should be condemned because they violate the Georgian authorities’ sovereign right to implement their constitutional powers and obligations in the territory of Georgia within the borders recognized by the international community. They are also a flagrant manifestation of one-sided violation of binding international agreements and conventions.

The authorities of the Republic of Poland declare their solidarity with the Georgian authorities and support actions aimed at restoring the territorial sovereignty of the State of Georgia. We recognize that the mobilization of efforts by the international community has helped to contain the aggressive policy of the Russian Federation towards Georgia.

We once again call upon Russia to refrain from provocative steps against Georgia and to implement unconditionally all the commitments set out in the Sarkozy-Medvedev agreements, which along with the continuation of the Geneva talks and the full exercise of the EU Monitoring Mission’s (EUMM Georgia) mandate in Georgia should set the peace process on the right course.
