10 years since the deployment of the EUMM in Georgia

1 min read

The FINANCIAL — Its 10 years since the European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM) was deployed to Georgia. The EUMM Georgia was launched in order to ensure that parties complied with the EU-brokered Ceasefire Agreement signed on 12 August 2018.

For a decade, the EUMM has played an essential role in preventing the escalation of the conflict contributing to enhanced security and stability on the ground. However, monitors whose mandate extends throughout the entire territory of Georgia have no access to the occupied regions.

The EUMM is the only international monitoring mechanism in Georgia entrusted with an important task of providing the international community with reliable and objective information on the security and human rights situation, as well as on the violations of the Ceasefire Agreement by Russia.

The EU Council’s decision to extend the EUMM’s mandate, as well as the Member States’ contribution towards ensuring the effective operation of the Mission clearly indicates that the European Union’s priority is to ensure the peaceful resolution of the conflict and achievement of security and stability on the ground.
