Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia

Georgian border guards placed at Russian-Georgian border denied entry to Georgia for Russian citizens of Ossetian origin, natives of settlement Kob, who were going to their native village to celebrate a religious holiday. Without explanation, deportation stamps, banning from entry for five years, were placed in their passports, and later, with reference to an order of a higher official, it has been cynically stated that “not a single Ossetian would ever enter the territory of village Kob”.
