Russian Foreign Ministry: South Ossetia and Abkhazia have right for independency

2009-04-23 13:37

According to Sergey Lavrov, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, the lawfulness of Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's withdrawal from Georgia cannot be disputed - ITAR TASS.


In his interview to BBC he highlighted that South Ossetia and Abkhazia constituted themselves and withdrew from Georgia absolutely legally, according to the USSR law of April 3rd 1990.

The lawfulness of this cannot be disputed as Georgia itself withdrew from the USSR on the basis of the same law, he reminded. South Ossetia and Abkhazia held referendums, proclaimed independency, adopted constitutions, established parliaments and governments, Lavrov explained.

Russia recognized South Ossetia not for geopolitical reasons, but for the sake of ensuring security and self-survival of South Ossetian and Abkhazian peoples, the Minister noted.
