Expert: 5-day war started a new counting in South Caucasus2010-08-26 14:58
Fyodor Lukianov, the editor-in-chief of Russia in Global Affairs journal, believes that war in August 2008 crucially influenced the situation in South Caucasus - Res.gt-en-newsitem-inside
In his view, with end of the war another counting started in the region.
Lukyanov believes that recognition of republics [Abkhazia and South Ossetia] from the side of Russia wasn't a part of some planned beforehand strategy.
He added that in the nearest time no mass recognition of the republics should be expected. In his opinion, recognition of Kosovo, Abkhazia, and South Ossetia accelerated the main tendency - blurring legitimacy of borders in Europe, including the post-Soviet space.
In the view of Lukyanov, in case the process goes further, the situation in Georgia will be considered from another angle.
