Statement of the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the Russian Prime Minister's visit to occupied Abkhazia

On 2 June 2011, the Russian Prime Minister, Mr. Vladimir Putin, crossed Georgia's state border and went to occupied Sukhumi in order to attend Sergey Bagapsh's funeral.

During a meeting with representatives of the occupying regime, Mr. Putin is quoted as saying 'we will contribute to international contacts with all states, including with the closest neighbours'. In Russia's 'new reality', Abkhazia has two close neighbours: Russia itself and Georgia.

The Kremlin is insistent in its efforts to create an illusion of legitimacy for the occupying regime it has set up, as well as to establish ethnic cleansing, the military occupation of a sovereign country's territories and the forced re-drawing of borders as an instrument of international relations.

Mr. Putin must, however, be well aware that all these attempts will lead nowhere, and that neither Georgia nor the international community will ever accept any 'new reality' based upon the gross violation of the norms and principles of international law and the outcomes of ethnic cleansing.
