De-facto South Ossetian President Anatoly Bibilov demands the removal of Georgian Checkpoint in Chorchana village, otherwise, as Bibilov claims, locals of occupied Akhalgori town will not be able to enter the territory controlled by the Georgian central government.
“I do not want to be a traitor before these people. The measures we are applying are well thought. . . If we are united, then let us resolve the problem connected to provoking closure of roads, together, and ask the Georgian government to remove the checkpoint,” Bibilov said.
During the meeting with locals of Akhalgori at Culture House, Bibilov said that locals had to apply to the Georgian authorities for resolution of their problem.
Some locals, who were attending the meeting, expressed dissatisfaction and left the hall in protest. They said that their relatives lived in Tbilisi and they were ready to give up their South Ossetian citizenship and passports if they were unable to visit the relatives.
