The European Union does not recognise the ‘presidential elections’ in Georgia’s Russian occupied region of Abkhazia.

The European Union supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia, as recognized by international law,” says the EU.

The EU says that it will continue its policy of non-recognition and engagement in this regard.
