Russia hinders international organizations in Georgia: minister
Georgia, Tbilisi, Dec. 28 / Trend , N.Kirtskhalia / The Russian Federation does everything in order to "kill" all international organizations and their mandates in the conflicting zones in Georgia, Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze said to journalists on Dec. 28.

Meanwhile Moscow requires to take into account "new reality" after recognition of separatists Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russia and discovery of there separate mission of OSCE and United Nations.
