OSCE involvement

The Sochi Agreement in 1992, brokered by Russia, established a Joint Control Commission (JCC) with equal representation from Georgia, Russia, North Ossetia, and South Ossetia. The JCC was given oversight of a Joint Peacekeeping Force(JPKF), consisting of 500-man battalions from Georgia, North Ossetia, and Russia. (The JCC was terminated by the 2008 Russia-Georgia War.)
