Ukrainian World Congress calls on the international community to take notice of new violation of territorial integrity of Georgia
The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) condemns another violation of the territorial integrity of Georgia by the Russian Federation as a breach of international law and an aggressive provocation of the international community.
On 10 July 2015 Russian troops unilaterally moved border markers 450 meters deeper into Georgia from the South Ossetia demarcation line. As a result, a 1.6 km.-long segment of the Baku-Supsa oil pipeline is now on territory illegally occupied by the Russian Federation.
“President Vladimir Putin is, once again, testing the resolve of the international community,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij. “The threat posed by the Russian Federation to global peace and security increases with indecision by the Western world, including whether to supply Ukraine the necessary defensive lethal weapons to enable it to stop, at its border, the imperialist ambitions of the Russian President.”
