Moscow doesn’t intend to allocate Belarus a credit for recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia

Belarus shouldn't be waiting for Russia's gratitude in form of credits for recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the Kommersant reports alluding to sources in Kremlin and Russian Foreign Ministry.


"We don't connect this issue with credits for a long time. Minsk postponed the decision for such a long time that it's no longer the object for trade. As for credits, it's the ministry of Finance that manages money. There's no policy", a high-ranking official of Foreign Ministry of Russia said. The administration of the President of Russia confirmed: "Lukashenka's statements are his personal initiative. He himself promised it long ago. It's senseless to ground the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia with our credits", - Noviy Region.

In the course of his visit to Lithuania Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenka stated that the parliament of Belarus would consider recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in October and highlighted it wasn't the result of pressure.

Initially the issue was planned to be discussed on April 2nd 2009, but was adjourned to indefinite period. Some political scientists said Minsk didn't want to spoil relations with the EU, repeatedly backing Georgia's territorial integrity.

Abkhazia and South Ossetia were recognized by Russia, Nicaragua, and [recently] by Venezuela. A number of experts said the recognition by Venezuela would be an additional argument for the similar step of Belarus.
