FSS promised not to sink Georgian vessels

2009-09-15 15:34

Ships of the FSS RF [Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation]border service won't sink Georgian vessels in case they appear in Abkhazian waters.


According to Viktor Trufanov, the deputy head of border guard service, they will be detained - Interfax.

At the same time, in early September Sergey Bagapsh, the leader of Abkhazia, ordered the Abkhazian fleet to sink Georgian vessels violating the Abkhazian sea border. He highlighted that this step was forced by "continuous acts of piracy from the Georgian side".

Bagapsh also specified that he spoke only about the fleet of Abkhazia, and no means of Russian marine forces will be involved in settling the issue.

No-one explains what will happen in case some Georgian ship enters Abkhazian waters and is detected by both Abkhazian and Russian forces simultaneously.

Georgian regards Abkhazia as own constituency and regards delivery of goods to Abkhazia without Tbilisi's permission as a crime. Since beginning of 2009 23 vessels has been detained, out of them 4 - for violation of the rules of entering the "occupied territories".
