EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia acts since October 2008. European observers monitor the situation in confrontation line in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The mission consists of 260 observers from 25 EU countries.
Large scale military action was launched in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August. In response, Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognised republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
