On 6 June Georgia’s Foreign Ministry announced that it had successfully prevented another terrorist attack, which – according to their investigation – had been organised by Russia. This time the target of the attack was a NATO liaison office in Tbilisi. The police have arrested the alleged attacker – a resident of the South Ossetian village of Akhalgori, which is currently occupied by Russian forces. The man reportedly confessed to being recruited by Russian troops and South Ossetian police officers.
Several days earlier Tbilisi reported thwarting an attack which was to be carried out by two Abkhazian residents also recruited by Russia. The Russian Foreign Ministry responded by saying that the reports are a provocation.
