The EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) has taken note of statements regarding the situation in the area of Nikozi close to the South Ossetian Administrative Boundary Line (ABL).
The EUMM has monitored these works closely and maintains a reinforced patrolling presence in the Nikozi area. The Mission can confirm that some of the lines ploughed in May in its analysis are indeed ploughed across the Administrative Boundary Line.
The Mission will continue to monitor, record and report on activities that affect stability and freedom of movement in line with its mandate.
The Mission notes that recent developments at the ABL will be addressed by participants at the next meeting of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism to take place in Ergneti on 15 May.
