Today the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly will consider a draft resolution, where Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions are mentioned as occupied territories. 

The initiator of the resolution is Polish Deputy Mikheil Sherba and co-authors are 36 MPs from 9 OSCE member countries.  

Resolution author believes that the OSCE will finally adopt this strict document, despite the fact that Russia has more “supporters” in this organization than in other international unions.     

According to Sherba, European Christian-Democrats, Conservators and Liberals are going to support the resolution.  

It became known, that German Free Democrats party tried to remove term “occupied territories” from the resolution text. “Echo Moskvi” reported that the party has proposed amendment, according to which Abkhazia and, the so-called, South Ossetia were mentioned not as occupied territories, but as “breakaway regions”. However this amendment failed to gain enough supporters to become an issue of discussion. 

According to the resolution presented by Mikheil Sherba, OSCE Parliamentary Assembly calls on the parties to abide by the principles of international law, to implement the ceasefire agreement, to ensure the safe and dignified return of refugees and the most important, the Assembly “urges the Russian government and the parliament, as well as the de-facto authorities of Georgian regions - Abkhazia and South Ossetia, to allow EU Observers’ Mission to have unhindered access to the occupied territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia”.        

Today in Monaco, in the frameworks of the OSCE annual session, only discussion on the resolution about Georgia will be held. The document will be voted on Monday.
