Georgian citizen Vasiko Kenkadze, unlawfully detained by Russian occupying forces near Balaani village, has been released and is now in the territory controlled by the central government, the State Security Service (SSG) reported Wednesday.
“The Georgian Government raised the issue of Kenkadze’s immediate release at the 115th meeting of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM).
“The government kept international partners informed throughout the process. The central government, in cooperation with international partners, remains committed to actively working towards the release of all Georgian citizens unlawfully detained in the occupied territories,” the SSG stated.
The SSG emphasizes that responsibility for any destructive actions carried out in the occupied regions of Georgia and along the Administrative Boundary Line (ABL) lies with the occupation force.
