UN Resolutions on the Right of Return of the People Expelled from the Russian-occupied Regions of Georgia

Two provinces of Georgia – Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region – are illegally occupied by Russia. They comprise about one fifth of Georgia’s territory. Russia has between eight and ten thousand of its regular troops with heavy weaponry permanently stationed in these occupied Georgian territories. Most of the local Georgian population has been ethnically cleansed.

Since 2008, the United Nations General Assembly has been adopting annual resolutions supporting the right of return of the people violently forced to leave their homes in the Russian-occupied Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region.
