Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia from Georgia
Baku, Fineko/abc.az. President of Russia Dmitriy Medvedev signed today orders on recognizing the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russian Federation.
In his speech today D.Medvedev said that Russia appeals other countries to follow its example.
“Taking into account free will of Ossetia’s and Abkhazia’s people, based on the UN Charter statements, the declaration of 1970 on international law principles concerning friendly relations between the countries, the Helsinki Final Act of the Conference for Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) of 1975 and other basic international documents I have signed the orders on recognizing the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russian Federation,” D.Medvedev said.
Yesterday the Federation Council and State Duma of Russian Federal Meeting unanimously recommended the President to make such decision.
“That is a difficult choice, but an only way to save the peoples’ life,” D.Medvedev said.
Russia’s reaction caused the separatist regimes in Sukhuma and Zkhinval existing from 1991 addressing to it after Georgia tried to make coercive redintegration in those regions (August 8) which was suppressed on August 12 by Russian Armed Forces.
