“We’ll
strictly raise this issue, especially before the Russian delegation. Everything should be done in order not to interfere with the process of investigation, to identify the persons, who are guilty. However, identifying individuals does not mean that Russia should not take political responsibility for what has happened.

Geneva International Discussions

Everything should be done in order to successfully complete the investigation process. This will be the main topic we will raise today with co-chairs and co-moderators. This is a challenge in terms of security. The ongoing developments in terms of human rights on the occupied territories are lawlessness and unfortunately, this is not the first fact. Two years ago, there was the fact of murder of Otkhozoria, earlier, the fact of Basharuli’s murder. If the offenders are not punished and nobody takes the responsibility – and it’s clear who – this is the force that is carrying out effective control on occupied territories, it will continue in the future, "- said David Dondua.
