The Georgian Foreign Ministry has sent a note of protest to the Russian Federation through the Embassy of the Swiss Confederation

On 11 August 2015, the Swiss side was handed a note of protest for submitting it to the Russian Federation in connection with the illegal installation by the Russian occupation forces of the banner marking the so-called “border” on the territory adjacent to the villages of Tamarasheni and Tseronisi of the Kareli municipality on 10 August.
 
The Note underlines that this is the third case of installation of the banners within the last month. The Russian Federation through the purposeful, provocative and aggressive actions escalates the situation and poses threat to stability on the territories adjacent to the occupation line.
