Residents of the Russian occupied Georgian region of Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) cannot use the crossing-point between the breakaway region and the rest of Georgia for next three days.


The de-facto administration of Tskhinvali is closing the border due to the “inauguration” of president-elect Anatoly Bibilov scheduled this Saturday, April 21.

Illegal presidential elections were held in Russian occupied Tskhinvali on April 9 together with a referendum on changing Tskhinvali region’s name to “the Republic of South Ossetia – the State of Alania”.


Georgia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine have denounced the illegal elections and the referendum in occupied Tskhinvali last week.


NATO condemned the illegitimate elections, referendum in Georgia’s occupied territories.
