Elections in South Ossetia are illegal and will have no legal force, the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has stated. A similar statement was made by the MFAs of Lithuania and Latvia.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on April 11, South Ossetia held its presidential election.

The Georgian MFA has declared the illegality of the South-Ossetian presidential election. "This action is Russian Federation's another illegal act against Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is completely contrary to the norms and principles of the international law. Such provocative actions are aimed at legitimizing the illegal occupation of Georgia's regions," says the statement posted on the website of the Georgia's MFA. It adds that this election, as well as the suggested referendum on joining Russia, will not have any legal force.
