Abkhazia and South Ossetia may conduct their own exercises in response to the coming NATO maneuvers in Georgia, Svoboda radio reports. The statement was made by Sergey Bagapsh, the leader of Abkhazia.


He also noted that deployment of Russian military bases in Abkhazia is in completion phase and confirmed that bases are placed in Gudauta and Ochamchira. According to Bagapsh, Abkhazia will build the state border with Georgia and will guard it together with Russian forces.

The Russian side called the intention of NATO to conduct exercises in Georgia a "political demarche". The Foreign Ministry of Russia called for the Alliance to renounce the drills and "avoid steps that might again prompt in the Georgian regime a feeling of all-permissiveness and impunity". In response the bloc representatives proposed Russia to join the maneuvers, but Russia refused.
