2009-09-24 14:43

The Ministry of Defense of Russia disclaimed messages spread by Georgian authorities, concerning presence of Russian fleet submarines in Ochamchira [Abkhazia].


"The statements about it, made by the Vice Speaker of the Georgian Parliament, Paata Davitaya, are very far from reality. There are no Russian submarines in Ochamchira", said the ministry's spokesman - Interfax military.

Yesterday Georgia Times reported that Paata Davitaya, the Vice Speaker of the Georgian Parliament, said that the Russian side deployed not only ships but also submarines to guard the neutral waters of the Black sea. "They are deployed in the military base in Ochamchira", Davitaya said.

He added the deployment of military vessels in Abkhazianwaters of the Black sea violates the international legislation. "As for the Novorossiysk, it's an offensive ship, capable to enter the shore and land troops", the Vice Speaker shared.

That vessels started patrolling marine borders of Abkhazia on September 21st. 10 guarding vessels will be based in Ochamchira, among them Sobol and Mangoust. Also, the sea territory will be fully under coverage of radars aimed to detect large and intermediate objects.
