Q: Today Presidents of Georgia and Ukraine have visited the state border of the Republic of South Ossetia with Georgia. What are your comments on this fact?

A: It recently has become a bad tradition for Georgian authorities to organize provocative ceremonial excursions to the state border between South Ossetia and Georgia for their guests. Poroshenko was no exception and was shown a great honor – he participated in another border theatrics, claiming that he had arrived to testify “the territorial integrity” of Georgia.

Having its feet on the ground near the state border of the Republic of South Ossetia and having no possibility to step to the land of the sovereign state, Ukraine in the person of Poroshenko could only testify that “the territorial integrity” of Georgia, which claims to the territory of South Ossetia, is a fiction. One can not support the thing that doesn’t exist!
