Tbilisi Says S.Ossetia Polls 'Kremlin-Planned Event'
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 28 Nov.'11 / 14:20

Sunday’s presidential runoff in breakaway South Ossetia is not an election, but “an event planned by the Kremlin,” Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister, Nino Kalandadze, said on November 28.

“What is happening there is not considered as elections; that’s an event, which is planned by the Kremlin and which is led by the official Moscow and Moscow is responsible for its results,” she said.

“Events not agreed with Tbilisi are taking place in Georgia’s occupied territories. Unfortunately, human rights violations are also taking place and [Moscow], which is in charge of situation there, is responsible for that. We hope that the international community will react adequately. There was a very prompt and adequate reaction from the international community when the so called first round of [election on November 13] was condemned by the U.S., the European Union,” she added.
