Statement of the Georgian Foreign Ministry in reaction to the so-called parliamentary elections recently held in Abkhazia, Georgia

On 10 March 2012, Russian occupation forces and their proxy regimes held so-called "parliamentary elections" in the occupied region of Abkhazia. This unlawful act is yet another unsuccessful attempt to cover up the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of people with elements of supposedly "democratic" governance.

The crimes committed by the Russian occupants and their proxy regimes over the past 20 years have fundamentally distorted the demography of both the Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions. Internally displaced persons from the occupied region of Abkhazia are being prevented from exercising their right to return to their homes. The human rights of those who managed to remain are being violated by the occupation forces on a daily basis and international observers are blocked from travelling to the occupied region to report on these abuses as well as on the ongoing illegal militarization of the region.

The so-called "parliamentary elections" illegally held in the occupied region of Abkhazia are further proof of a complete disregard for internationally accepted norms and principles.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry calls upon the international community to properly assess this further farce conducted in Abkhazia and to continue to pressure Russia to fulfill its international obligations - including the provisions of the 12 August 2008 Ceasefire Agreement.
