Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia regarding the so-called ''presidential elections'' held in Abkhazia, Georgia

Today, on August 26, 2011 the Russian occupation forces and its proxy regime in Sokhumi conducted another cynical act of the pseudo-democratic policy - the so-called "presidential elections". Moscow also brought to Abkhazia several dozen of so-called "international observers" in an attempt to legitimize the outcome of these "elections", and thus the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of people. It is unfortunate that many "observers" visited Abkhazia without the prior knowledge of the situation on the ground or knowledge of being in violation of Georgian legislation.

There is no justification for such mockery of the international law. No decision on the future of Abkhazia can be legitimate as long as approximately half a million displaced persons, ¾ of the original population of the region are deprived of the right to participate in the decision-making.

Crimes committed by occupants and their puppet regime have fundamentally distorted the demographics of Abkhazia, Georgia, thus preventing IDP's and refugees of Georgian, Ukrainian, Armenian, Greek, Azerbaijani, Estonian and other ethnic origin to return to their homes. Moreover, the human rights of the remaining residents are violated on a daily basis by the occupation regime and no international observers are allowed to the occupied region to report on these abuses as well as on the ongoing illegal militarization. In the existing reality these "elections" clearly display a complete disregard of internationally accepted norms and principles and can not be considered legitimate by any standard.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia appeals to all members of the international community to give an adequate assessment to another farce conducted in one of the occupied regions of Georgia - Abkhazia - and steadily continue the non-recognition policy with reference to both occupied regions.
