Explanatory note

The use of correct terminology is decisive to counter Russia's propagandistic narrative in violation of Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity. The practice of using the abovementioned term is widely established in the international community and is considered to be the standard in the language of reports/resolutions/decisions and any other documents of international organisations.
