The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic sees the signature of the so-called Treaty on the Alliance and Strategic Partnership between the Russian Federation and the breakaway region of South Ossetia as yet another violation of international law. The issue of free border crossing is of particular concern. The signing of the above mentioned treaty, as that of the “Treaty on State Borders” dated 18 February 2015 between Russian Federation and the breakaway region of South Ossetia, undermines stabilization efforts of the international community in the South Caucasus region, seriously violates territorial integrity of Georgia, and thus again contradicts the international law.
