Upper part of Kodori Gorge under Abkhazian control

Верхняя часть Кодорского ущелья взята под контроль Абхазии

The armed forces of Abkhazia have completed an operation in the upper part of the Kodori Gorge. As Christian Bzhaniya, head of the press office of the President of Abkhazia, reports, soldiers have completely freed the territory from Georgian forces.

Let's remember that Georgia was given an ultimatum to disarm and remove its forces, which first entered the area in the summer of 2006 on the pretext of being special ops policemen, from the upper part of the Kodori Gorge. The presence of armies in this region is a violation of the basic agreements on separating the parties according to the Moscow treaty. In response to tensions in a zone which is the responsibility of CIS peacekeeping forces for the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict, the forces were reinforced last night by the Russian Airborne Troops. Abkhazia stated that Georgian formations are beginning a military operation to clear out the upper part of the Kodori Gorge.
