Six Point Agreement Georgia

Today, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement that Russia never signed a ceasefire agreement with Georgia after the 2008 war between Russia and Georgia. The recognition by Russia was condemned by the United States, France, the Secretary-General of the Council of Europe, the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the President of the OSCE, NATO and the G7, on the grounds that it violated Georgia`s territorial integrity, UN Security Council resolutions and the ceasefire agreement. [255] [256] [257] [258] [259] In response to Russia`s action, the Georgian government severed diplomatic relations with Russia. [260] The war in Georgia showed Russia`s ability to control international relations and bring down the hegemony of the United States. Shortly after the war, Russian President Medvedev unveiled a five-point Russian foreign policy. According to the Medvedev doctrine, „the protection of the life and dignity of our citizens, wherever they may be, is an undeniable priority for our country.” The presence of Russian citizens abroad would be a doctrinal basis for an invasion. Medvedev`s statement on the existence of Russian „privileged interests” underscored Russia`s special share of the post-Soviet states and the fact that Russia would feel threatened by subversion of Russian-friendly local governments. [269] Russian troops had crossed the Russian-Georgian border illegally and were until 7 August before the Georgian military response in the South Ossetia conflict zone. [38] [40] [41] [42] [43] Russia accused Georgia of „aggression against South Ossetia”[39] and launched a vast invasion of land, air and sea in Georgia on 8 August under the pretext of a „peacekeeping” operation. [44] Russian and South Ossetia troops fought for several days against Georgian troops in and around South Ossetia, until Georgian troops withdrew. Russian and Abkhazian troops opened a second front by attacking the Kodori Gorge, held by Georgia. Russian naval forces have blocked part of the Georgian coast.

The Russian Air Force has attacked targets outside the conflict zone in undisputed parts of Georgia. It was the first war in history where cyberwarfare coincided with military actions.
