The European Parliament has officially secured the Abkhazia and South Ossetia status of the occupied territories and called on Russia to withdraw its troops from Georgia

Resolution recognizing the Russian occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and conducting ethnic cleansing there. It is noteworthy that the approval of the resolution voted 527 deputies, only 23 of parliament went against it. Earlier, in July of this year, the occupation of Georgia by Russia and the U.S. Senate recognized.

Immediately after the European Parliament’s approval of the document arrived in Tbilisi his “hero” - the author of the report on Georgia, Polish deputy Krzysztof Lizek. In his speech to the deputies of the Georgian legislature, he said that “all phenomena must be called by their names,” and emphasized that the resolution the occupation of Georgia already recorded three times.

“All very well see that the situation in Abkhazia and South Ossetia hinder stability. Russia must withdraw its troops from Georgia and begin the process of de-occupation,” - he said. The deputy from Poland assured that Europe will help Georgia in its reform efforts of all.

The resolution reads in part: “Russia continues to occupy parts of Georgia - Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region / South Ossetia, ethnic cleansing and forced demographic changes in violation of fundamental norms and principles of international law.” The document also stresses that Russia, as the occupying power is responsible for the violation of human rights in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

As explained by the Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili in a televised address to the nation’s population, “in other words, the occupation authority of Russia accused of war crimes against humanity.” “After the situation in the Balkans in the world no one has officially been charged with a crime against humanity” - he said. The Georgian president believes that “occupation always ends up de-occupation,” and “war criminals are punished.”

Saakashvili called the “historic” resolution “of the authority of the legislature and the world”. He stressed that the document was adopted on the ground, when the Russian diplomats’ suitcases (the money. - Ed.) Attempting to bribe “various countries, including Latin America, that they recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

“But after the adoption of the resolution - he believes - Europe will never recognize the legitimacy of the Russian military occupation, the independence of Georgian regions and the dismemberment of Georgia.” The Georgian president also believes that the EP resolution “has created a legal framework for the unification of Georgia.”

The Georgian authorities, in the context of approval of the document, received one more point in its favor, but, so to speak, for internal use: it was expected that official Tbilisi will put a string deprivation billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili Georgian citizenship, but the proper initiative of Austrian Hannes Svoboda Deputy to the European Parliament screwed. Less than a softer wording - “pressure on political opponents.”
