TBILISI, DFWatch–Russian border guards on Tuesday detained two Georgian citizens who were out attending cattle in Bershueti, which borders with the breakaway region South Ossetia.

The detainees are Muraz Javakhishvili (75) and Ivane Sekhniashvili (41).

According to relatives, the two were on Georgia-controlled territory, and did not cross the disputed border.

“Such cases happen once a week in our region. All government bodies that may be concerned are involved in this process in order to help release detainees as soon as possible,” the head of Gori municipality Davit Oniashvili told television station Imedi.
