Interfax: Moscow thinks separate EU observer mission in Georgia will be redundant

The Russian Foreign Ministry thinks that it is irrational to deploy a separate EU monitoring group in Georgia.

"We believe that this will lead to excessive fragmentation of the international monitoring effort, which today is in fact carried out by the UN and the OSCE," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko told a news conference on Monday.

Moscow also hopes that "the EU will get actively involved in the effort to launch an OSCE police mission in the security zone adjacent to South Ossetia," Nesterenko said.
