MADRID, July 26 (.) –
The president of Georgia, Salome Zourabichvili, has denounced this Monday a series of attempts by Russia to annex Georgian territories located in the breakaway region of Abkhazia.
The pro-Russian authorities of Abkhazia last week approved the transfer to the territory of the Russian Federation of an official residence and its surrounding territories in the city of Pitsunda, in northwestern Georgia, on the shores of the Black Sea.
According to President Zourabichvili, this decision by the Abkhazian authorities constitutes “a form of annexation of Georgian territory by Russia”, and has denounced a “continuous occupation” in the region.
“I strongly condemn it and ask the international community to react strongly to this,” Zourabichvili said on his Twitter social network profile.
Georgia and Russia had a brief war over South Ossetia and the Abkhazia region in 2008. After the conflict ended, Moscow, whose forces prevailed, recognized both regions as independent nations, although the vast majority of countries have not. done.
