Poland slams Russian 'occupation' of Georgian regions since 2008

Once again we call on Russian Federation to comply with the August 2008 ceasefire agreement and pull its forces out of Georgia, ' said Minister of Foreign Affairs of Norway Ine Eriksen Soreide.

Tbilisi and its Western partners condemned the move as an "illegal occupation of Georgian soil" and the first time a sovereign state's borders were changed in Europe through military force since the end of World War Two.

The Russian military quickly routed the Georgian army during the August 2008 war.

The aggression against Georgia did not start in August 2008, but much earlier, in 1991-92, Margvelashvili said, when "Russia detached two regions from the Georgian central authorities by means of hybrid war".

The Georgian forces were defeated within days.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the "Russian military presence in both Abkhazia and South Ossetia continues to violate global law".

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Irakli Koplatadze, termed the Russia's 2008 military intervention into Georgia as a "direct attack on Europe's security and worldwide order".

Georgian government continued their efforts for reconciliation by carrying out a policy dialogue for restoring territorial integrity, Koplatadze said.

The guests will also visit the conflict line and meet with Georgian president, PM and speaker of parliament. Poland fully supports these policies, the FM stated, as well as Tbilisi's cooperation with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and is willing to offer further help in the reform of the Georgian defence sector.

On 12 July NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reaffirmed the Allied leaders' support for Georgia's aspiration to join the Alliance.

But since 2008, when North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders promised Georgia it would one day join the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the Western dream of the small Caucasus country has been a source of anger for its northern neighbour Russian Federation.

Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev has said that a bad conflict could emerge from Georgia's accession into the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bloc and noted that there was no real justification of such risk. "It [Russia] is a direct aggressor".
