Bagapsh reckons upon recognition of Abkhazia by Kiev and Minsk2010-04-29 12:50
President of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh hopes for the soon recognition of the republic on the part of Ukraine and Byelorussia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"I treat it (Ukraine's possible recognition of Abkhazia) with careful optimism. It is extremely important for us that Ukraine decided upon the recognition and that Byelorussia ventured to close the issue at last", - Bagapsh told the representatives of the leading Russian media today, RIA Novosti reports.
Let us remind you that President of Byelorussia Alexander Lukashenko stated earlier that the decision as to the possible recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia on Minsk's part will be taken by the parliament. The republics sent notifications about the recognition of their independence at the end of 2008. Nevertheless, the issue was never put on the agenda of any sessions of the Byelorussian legislative body.
As to official Kiev's position on the matter, President Victor Yanukovitch does not give any definite answer whether Ukraine will refuse to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
For instance, one of these days, after the meeting with Secretary General of the Council of Europe Turbjern Yagland Yanukovitch was asked whether Kiev is going to recognize the independence of these two republics.
"Ukraine is ready to support the process of the equality of the democratic values and the people's rights in the territories of the frozen conflicts", - Yanukovitch said. He added that he is "strongly opposed to the application of the double-standards policy". "It is time to consider the criteria of providing independence to the territories of the frozen conflicts, as well as the approach to the localization of these conflicts in the current situation", - President of Ukraine added.
While answering, Yanukovitch managed to avoid mentioning the names of the states.
It should also be noted that before Yanukovitch came to power, the regional Party stated that it was the then President Victor Yushchenko who prevented Ukraine's recognition of the Caucasian republics' independence
