The Delegation of the European Union to Georgia on Friday reaffirmed its support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity following the illegal move by de facto authorities in the country’s occupied north-western Abkhazia region to transfer land to Russia this week. 

“Any decision undermining territorial integrity of Georgia, such as an attempt to transfer land in the occupied breakaway region of Abkhazia to Russia is illegal, null and void”, the diplomatic office said in a social media message.
