The human rights situation in Georgia’s occupied regions featured in the annual Human Rights Report of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office for the first time

Due to the efforts of the Embassy of Georgia to the UK, the human rights situation in Georgia’s occupied regions was for the first time included in the annual Human Rights Report of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

In its section on the Russian Federation, the document discusses human rights situation in Georgia’s occupied Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region.

“Russian actions in Abkhazia and South Ossetia led to deterioration in the human rights situation in both regions. There was increased pressure on freedom of movement, including through denial of access to documentation, closure of crossing points and installation of razor wire fences along the Administrative Boundary Lines. Georgian language education has been severely curtailed and laws have been passed restricting the residency and property rights of ethnic Georgians. The UK continued to call on Russia and the de facto authorities in both regions to allow international human rights organisations access to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. FCO Minister Sir Alan Duncan reiterated the importance of this during a visit to Georgia in November” – reads the report. 

On July 24, State Minister for the Commonwealth and the United Nations of the UK  Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon will officially present to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office the report covering the activities of the Foreign Office and its diplomatic network in 2016 for defending human rights and promoting democracy worldwide.
