Abkhazia: Moscow Demands End to Georgian Provocations against Peacekeepers
On August 31, Georgia stopped and detained peacekeepers' vehicles delivering cargo to the personnel with the Collective Peacekeeping Forces in the zone of the conflict between Georgia and the self-proclaimed republic of Abkhazia. The vehicles were only released after the CPF command intervened, but some cargo was not returned.
"Moscow protests against the provocations made by the Georgian side, which created obstacles for the Collective Peacekeeping Forces fulfilling the important task of maintaining peace and security in the conflict zone. Such actions must come to an end and the detained cargo must be immediately returned to the peacemakers," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
