Occupation forces in central Georgia's Kareli Municipality carried out an act of borderisation on Friday, Georgia's State Security Service told reporters in Tbilisi.

The state agency said the incident had been noted near the village of Takhtisdziri in the municipality, in an area adjacent to the administrative boundary line denoting the occupation of the Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) region.

The SSS told local media the European Union Monitoring mission for the post-2008 conflict zone had been notified along with co-chairs of the Geneva International Discussions.

The security agency also called the incident "significantly damaging" to the local security situation and daily lives of local population.

Borderisation refers to actions carried out by occupying forces including moving of barbed wire lines denoting administrative boundary between the Russian-occupied Tskhinvali from the rest of Georgia.

Earlier this week the Georgian parliament received the annual 2019 security report from the SSS, in which the agency said Russia's policy towards Georgia continued to pose major threats for the country throughout last year.
