The seizure of medicines with Georgian inscriptions as an act directed against humans. Such a statement made the State Minister for Reconciliation and Civic Equality Ketevan Tsikhelashvili.
According to the State Minister, there is a severe humanitarian crisis in Tskhinvali region. There is a great need for access to medicines and products in the occupied territory, though repressive measures are being deliberately taken aiming to cut ties and contacts with the rest of Georgia at the expense of everything else.
“Unfortunately, deliberate discrimination is underway against the ethnic Georgian population living in the occupied territories and generally, isolation of these regions from the rest of Georgia is taking place. This is not new, but unfortunately, it has new manifestations that affect hundreds and thousands of people.
The fact that seizure of medicines with Georgian inscriptions was launched a few days ago and is still underway is directed against the people and not only Georgians but also many ethnic Ossetians are being damaged. These drugs are of vital importance for the whole population of Tskhinvali region. Ignorance of the needs of the people living there and dooming them to death is taking place”, - concluded said Tsikhelashvili.
