Russian forces are still behaving badly in Georgia's occupied territory, Abkhazia. This time they destroyed Polish church (its remains) and cemetery, the day after similar provocation in Ukraine.

“The Russian Federation’s armed forces have demolished the 19th century church and the Polish cemetery in order to build a shooting range there. It is a deliberate act of vandalism that grossly violates the norms of international law, including the terms of the 1954 Hague Convention” — Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili.

In a statement released on January 10, the Georgian Foreign Ministry called on the Russian Federation “to halt the practice of damaging and destructing the cultural monuments in the occupied territories.”
