The State Department is ready to pay $ 10 million for information about election interference

According to a Ukrinform correspondent, this is stated in a joint statement by Belgium, Estonia, France, Germany, Great Britain, the United States, Ireland and Norway, adopted following the UN Security Council’s discussion of the situation in the occupied territories of Georgia.

«We strongly support Georgia’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,» the statement said.

It is noted that Russia’s permanent military presence in the Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as Russia’s recognition of the so-called independence of these regions, violates Georgia’s territorial integrity and undermines its sovereignty and rule-based international order.

«This further divides people and endangers the health and lives of the population affected by the conflict,» the signatories said.

They expressed concern about the «intensification of the so-called delimitation process over the past year.»

«In the current — and so difficult times — the de facto authorities of Abkhazia and South Ossetia have continued the practice of selective detentions along the administrative border. The de facto South Ossetian authorities have repeatedly denied emergency medical evacuation and humanitarian assistance, ”the document reads.

Most members of the Security Council also expressed concern about «Russia’s disinformation campaign related to the pandemic and related health issues.»

«These actions prolong the conflict, threaten peace and stability, impede the enjoyment of fundamental human rights and fundamental freedoms, and adversely affect the health and safety of the people of Georgia, destabilizing the entire region,» the statement said.

In this regard, the signatories called on Russia to «fully implement its commitments and promises.»

«We are also calling on the de facto authorities Abkhazia and South Ossetia to facilitate unimpeded access to these regions, including religious sites, for humanitarian workers and human rights defenders, as well as others, ”the document concludes.

As you know, August 7 marks 12 years since the beginning of Russia’s armed aggression against Georgia.
