Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia regarding the assertions of the first deputy head of the Russian FSB Border Guard Service Vyacheslav Dorokhin

On 10 March 2011 Krasnaya Zvezda, an official newspaper of the Russian Ministry of Defence published a press release on the briefing of the first deputy head of the Russian FSB Border Guard Service Vyacheslav Dorokhin, which dealt with the results of the Service's activity.

Among other issues Mr. Dorokhin focused on the situation in Georgia's occupied regions. In particular, he noted that due to the complicated situation in the Tskhinvali region, the number of Russian servicemen has increased by 300 to total 1200. As for Abkhazia, there is a number of 1300 Russian border guards there, and this number has also been increased by" introducing additional staff numbers at the Abkhazia division of the Russian Border Troops". It was emphasized at the briefing that premises and facilities built for Russian border guards are meant to function over centuries.

These statements indicate once again that Russia is not intending to comply with the ceasefire agreement of 12 August 2008 and deliberately increases its military presence on the occupied territories by enhancing its military contingent whether under the cover of the Defence Ministry or the border troops as well as by deploying a large amount of military equipment (including "Tochka - U" and Smerch multiple-launch rocket systems) there.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia demands from Russia to comply with its international commitments and start full de-occupation of Abkhazia, Georgia and the Tskhinvali region, Georgia in the shortest terms.
