Georgia, Tbilisi, Dec 6, Trend/ N. Kirtzkhalia
Georgian Foreign Ministry accused Russia of violating the international rule of law.
Russia held on Dec. 4 illegal elections to the State Duma of Russia in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
"Russia's Central Election Commission opened 12 polling stations in the occupied territories without coordinating this matter with the Georgian authorities, and elections were attended by those citizens who got Russian passports as a result of illegal certification. Thus, Russia has one again violated the international law," the official statement.
The Georgian Foreign Ministry called on the international community to "adequately" react to Russia's ignoring the internationally accepted principles
Military actions were launched in the Georgian territory, South Ossetia on Aug.8 in 2008. Later the Russian troops occupied the Tskhinvali city and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced two unrecognized republics as the occupied territories.
