The Deputy Head of the EU Monitoring Mission, General Gilles Janvier, has welcomed the swift release today of three Russian civilians detained by the Georgian authorities yesterday. EUMM monitored their handover by the Georgian Government to the Russian authorities earlier at Ergneti.
“EUMM welcomes the practical way this case was handled by all sides through the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism hotline. We very much hope that the IPRM process will continue to act as the forum for future such activities.”
