The Russian-controlled occupation forces have blocked the church’s door in the Kirbali village of central Gori municipality, David Katsarava, a leader of the anti-occupation movement, posted on social media on Monday.
"Today, while patrolling, we discovered that occupiers have blocked the entrance door of the Lomisi church in the village of Kirbali. The church is on the Russian-controlled territory [of the occupied Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) region, but does it change anything? Do you call these swines monotheists?” Kastsarava wrote.
Russia occupies 20 percent of the Georgian territory - the country’s Abkhazia region in the north-west and Tskhinvali, in the central part of Georgia.
