Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia regarding the continuation of extraction of inert materials from river deltas' in Abkhazia, Georgia

On December 6, 2011, the so-called "president" of the occupied region of Georgia -Abkhazia, made a statement regarding the „export" of inert materials, extracted from river deltas' of Abkhazia, Georgia, for the construction of infrastructure for Sochi 2014 Olympic Games.

According to the representative of the occupation regime, they intend to „export" up to 1-2 million cubic meters of inert materials to Russia.

This statement is a confirmation that extraction and „export" of inert materials from Abkhazia, Georgia for the Olympic infrastructure still continues in grave violation of the fundamental principles and norms of international law as well as the Georgian legislation.

Georgian side addressed the entire International Community on this subject numerous times.

If this process continues, eventually, the unique and fragile nature, adjacent to the Russia-Georgia's state border, will be irreparably injured that equals to the ecological catastrophe of the whole Black Sea region.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia once again addresses the international community and International Organizations including those working on environmental issues, to take all the necessary measures, in order to stop illegal activities of the Russian Federation and its controlled occupation regime.
