The Statement of the President of Georgia on the So-Called Elections to Be Conducted in the Occupied Abkhazia

Conducting the so-called elections in the occupied Abkhazia is another attempt to legitimize the occupation regime. This attempt does not have a legal power and cannot have any legal outcomes.
Under the current circumstances, when a large part of the Abkhazian population is refugees and internally displaced persons, who are still not allowed to return to their homeland and when the supervisory mechanism in the occupied territory is implemented by the foreign state, the Russian Federation, it is impossible to discuss the populations’ free will of expression.
I call on the international community not to allow legitimization of the occupation regime. We once again call on the Russian Federation to fulfill its obligations, imposed under the agreement of August 12, 2008 and to respect sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia.
