The US Department of State has condemned Russia's redoubled efforts of ‘borderisation’ amid pandemic. 

The US Department of State spokesperson has tweeted: 

The US embassy to Georgia condemned Russia’s actions along the occupation line yesterday, stating that “over the past two weeks, these Russian-led security forces have erected unauthorised fences and reinforced existing illegal ‘borderisation’ efforts near 12 separate Georgian villages.”

The US embassy also responded to Russia’s continued attacks on the US-built, Tbilisi Lugar Centre.
