The Russia-controlled so-called border guards have detained Georgian citizen David Chalauri near the occupation line with Georgia’s breakaway Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) region today.
Locals say that Chalauri, 29, allegedly could not find a way and accidently appeared on the territory which is under Russia’s control.
They say that the young man, who suffers from a serious heart disease- Atelocardia, has been detained for "illegal crossing of border”.
The detainee is from the Tirdznisi village, Gori municipality.
The occupants frequently illegally detain Georgian citizens for the crossing of so-called border and in most cases release them after paying a fine.
The fine is about $30.
