There will be less incidents along the border with Georgia2009-03-26 20:03
South Ossetia and Russia have prepared a document outlining their joint guarding of the Georgian-South Ossetian border. The general prosecutor's office of the republic reported this on 24th March.
"The document outlining the joint guarding and patrolling of the border was elaborated as part of the Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Aid Treaty signed between Russia and South Ossetia," Rossiiskaya Gazeta quotes the chief prosecutor of the republic, Taimuraz Khugaev. "The border has not yet been properly equipped, but soon checkpoints and other necessary infrastructure will start to be built. Preparations are also being carried out for the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Russian FSB and the South Ossetian KGB." According to the general prosecutor, border offices will also be established.
Therefore, it can be expected that the agreement will soon be legally implemented and will come into force. Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev signed an order for this to be done a few days ago. And judging by Khugaev's comment, neither Moscow nor Tskhinvali intends to delay implementing the joint guarding of the border.
Incidentally, Russian military bases have now been established in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and installations are currently being carried out on them. Moreover, as the commander-in-chief of Russia's ground troops, Vladimir Boldyrev, told Izvestiya on 20th March: "The fourth and seventh Russian bases, located in South Ossetia and Abkhazia respectively, will hold research tactical shooting exercises this summer".
Furthermore, joint exercises between the Russian, Abkhazian and South Ossetian armies are planned for this year. Both Tskhinvali and Sukhumi undoubtedly have an interest in carrying out military manoeuvres, because it is extremely important for the republics to improve their defence capabilities. For the time being, Russia has also expressed a willingness to help Abkhazia and South Ossetia by jointly guarding their borders, but in the future the republics are intending to solve these vital problems independently. Which is naturally worthy of respect. Self-improvement is also an important issue for the Russian army, and the bases in the young republics should give a further impulse to the development of Russia's armed forces.
