Statement of the Georgian Foreign Ministry in reaction to Russian Army field exercises in Georgia's occupied Tskhinvali region

On the 5th of December 2014 the Russian Army began to hold simultaneous field exercises on six firing ranges in the Russian Federation's Southern Military District and in Georgia's occupied region of Tskhinvali.

The officers and servicemen of the Russian 58th Army are carrying out large-scale exercises in the use of various artillery and advanced radio location systems. These exercises notably involve advanced Russian offensive military equipment such as "Msta-S" self-propelled howitzers, "Tornado-G" multiple launch rocket systems, and "Zoopark-1" radar vehicles equipped with Glonass navigation systems. Over 1,000 men and 200 units of military equipment are taking part in these field exercises.

These actions of the Russian Federation are a further infringement of Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity. They constitute a gross violation of the Georgian Constitution, of the norms and principles of international law and of Russia's international commitments including those Russia undertook by the Ceasefire Agreement of 12 August 2008, and pose a threat to peace and stability in the region.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry is extremely concerned by this matter, and demands that the Russian government comply with the commitments it has undertaken and that it withdraw its armed forces from the territory of Georgia and de-occupy Georgia's regions.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry calls upon the international community to duly react to this further destructive step which Russia has undertaken, and to prevent another action aimed at undermining Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
