Tskhinvali’s de-facto regime renovated their unlawfully placed border barriers

Representatives of The Tskhinvali de-facto regime have started renovating so-called border barriers on occupied territories between the villages of Dudukantsari and Khurvaleti. After the Russia-Georgia war in 2008, Russian forces invaded the territories and are moving their administrative borders further into Georgia. These borders are not recognized internationally.

“They have not erected new barbed wires. Representatives of the de-facto regime installed the so-called border barriers in 2010 and they are repairing them now due to the damages inflicted over the years.

This sad reality is going on for 10 years now. The reports are saying that new barbed wires are being installed are not true,” says Roin Adikashvili, a representative for the Municipality of Gori Mayor.
