Kremlin-backed authorities of the Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia have temporarily opened three crossing points along the dividing line with Georgia proper from 08:00 on April 21 to 20:00 on April 25 for Orthodox Christian Easter holidays, Tskhinvali-based RES news agency reports.
The crossing points that will resume operations are Odzisi, connecting the ethnic Georgian majority occupied Akhalgori district to Mtskheta district in Georgia proper, as well as Karzmani and Sinaguri, connecting the occupied Java district with Sachkhere district, Imereti Region.
Ergneti and Zardiantkari crossing points, along the occupied region’s dividing line with the Gori district in the Shida Kartli region, will apparently remain closed.
The State Security Service, Georgia’s domestic intelligence agency, told Civil.ge today that “partial lightening the restrictions on freedom of movement improves the day-to-day lives of the local populace.”
