Head of the European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM) to Georgia Erik Hoeg has briefed the Political and Security Committee (PSC) ambassadors from EU member states on the recent developments at the occupation line with Georgia’s currently Russian-occupied Tskhinvali (so-called South Ossetia) region in Brussels.

The EUMM is only international mission in Georgia which is able to monitor the situation at the occupation lines with Georgia’s two occupied regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali.

They are still not allowed [by Russia and de facto authorities] to enter the regions.
