Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia regarding the so-called ''presidential elections'' held in Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, Georgia

On November 13, 2011 the Russian occupation forces and Russia-established regime in the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, Georgia conducted another cynical act of the pseudo-democratic policy. The Russian Federation carried out the so called "presidential elections" and brought to Tskhinvali its own "observers" in an attempt to legitimize the outcomes of these "elections", and the ethnic cleansing of almost 2/3 of the local population.

Crimes committed by Russian occupants and their proxies have fundamentally distorted the demographics of Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, Georgia, thus depriving IDPs and refugees of the right to return to their homes. Human rights of the remaining population are violated on a daily basis by the occupation forces and no international observers are allowed to the occupied region to report these abuses as well as the ongoing illegal militarization of the region. In the existing reality these "elections" clearly illustrate a complete disregard of internationally accepted norms and principles and cannot be considered legitimate by any standard.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia calls on the members of the international community to give an adequate assessment to another farce conducted in one of the occupied regions of Georgia - Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia - and continue pressuring Russia to stop its provocative acts against Georgia and start fulfilling its obligations under the 12 August 2008 Ceasefire Agreement.
