The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia welcomes the Resolution of the European Parliamentary Assembly, which is connected to the honoring of obligations and commitments by the Russian Federation, including obligations connected to Georgia. 
On 2 October 2012 Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe during its autumn session adopted a Resolution 1896 (2012) on the honoring of obligations and commitments by the Russian Federation based on a report of György Frunda and Andreas Gross, co-rapporteurs on the Russian Federation of the PACE Committee on the Honoring of Obligations and Commitments by Member States of the Council of Europe (Monitoring Committee).
In seven years, it is the first full monitoring assessment of the Russian Federation, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has urged the newly-elected President Putin to "democratize the system" in Russia.
The document calls on the Russian authorities to fulfill international obligations particularly Resolutions 1633 (2008), 1647 (2008) and 1683 (2009) on the consequences of the war between Georgia and Russia and to denounce the concept of two different categories of foreign country, whereby some are treated as a zone of special influence called "the near abroad" and refrain from promoting the geographical doctrine of zones of "privileged interests".
The Resolution unequivocally condemns the fact that Russian authorities, while openly discarding the fundamental norms and principles of international law, opened the so-called polling stations in the occupied regions of Georgia - Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region / South Ossetia. 
The resolution concludes that opening of polling stations without the explicit consent of the de jure authorities in Tbilisi, as well as the prior "passportisation" of population in these territories violates the territorial integrity of this State, as recognised by the international community, including the Council of Europe.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia welcomes the adoption of this important Resolution and expresses confidence that the Parliamentary Assembly will further promote common European values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Europe.
