South Ossetia accuses Georgia of plotting provocations against Russian peacekeepers

TSKHINVALI. Nov 28 (Interfax) – The security services of the breakaway province of South Ossetia have warned that Georgia’s special services are plotting provocative acts against Russian peacekeepers deployed in the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict zone.

“The information available to us indicates that officers of the Georgian Interior Ministry have received orders to organize the detention of Russian servicemen from the peacekeeping forces, preferably officers, to take pictures during the [alleged] confiscation of fake U.S. dollars during a search and to record all this with a video camera,” a source in South Ossetian law enforcement services told Interfax on Tuesday.

The Georgian Interior Ministry circulated a statement on Monday accusing Russian peacekeepers of transporting counterfeit banknotes, the breakaway province’s First Deputy Prime Minister Boris Chochiyev said.
