2011-08-08 20:48

Today Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has made for ratification an agreement on joint Russian military bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia to the State Duma, as reported by Newsinfo.

Documents will regulate the issues of jurisdiction and shall establish the procedure of application of military formations, as well as the use and operation of military bases. Moreover, the documents will govern the terms of use of ground areas, determines the status of the personnel of the military base, as well as family members of military and civilian personnel. It is expected that an agreement on the bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia could be put to consideration of the supreme legislative body of the country in September.

According to the head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Alexei Ostrovsky, a joint military presence in the two independent republics are related to the possibility of repetition of the events of August 2008 in varying interpretations. "Certainly, untill 2013 Saakashvili's regime would be functioning in Tbilisi" - he said, adding that we should consider such a fact: the international community still has not provided an objective assessment of the event and has not established an international tribunal.

In turn, the head of South Ossetia Eduard Kokoity also believes that the ratification of the military agreements would put an end to fabrications of Georgian and Western politicians who call independent and recognized states "occupied territories". According to Kokoity, it is symbolic that the document was introduced by President Dmitry Medvedev on the anniversary of the of the Georgian aggression. "This is another indication that the Russian government has consistently pursued a policy aimed at bringing peace not only to South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but also throughout the region" - said Sablin.

In Georgia, whose leadership still regard Caucasian republics "lost territories", they cynically declared that Moscow continues an aggressive policy aimed at the destruction of the Georgian state, against the independence and sovereignty of the country and the citizens of Georgia. "Since the collapse of the Soviet Union Russia has conducted several waves of "ethnic cleansing" in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and then, "after getting rid" of the international presence in these areas, has made them so-called "black hole" - said the Georgian Foreign Ministry in a statement.
