Russia’s FSB border guard to appear at the Abkhaz and South Ossetian borders
Kommersant found out that Russia’s FSB border guard will defend the Abkhaz and South Ossetian borders. Representatives of the Interior Ministry told Kommersant that corresponding agreements will be signed with Tskhinvali and Sukhumi as soon as the State Duma ratifies the Treaties on Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance with the two Caucasian republics – yesterday drafts were introduced by President Dmitry Medvedev. Russian border guards as well as Abkhaz and South Ossetian military are planned to be allocated at the perimeter of these republics’ borders. Representatives of the Georgian Foreign Office told Kommersant that they will consider means of responding to that step as soon as Moscow’s “imperialist plan” is fulfilled...

..“We are planning to conclude such agreements with both Abkhazia and South Ossetia,” Andrei Kelin from the Foreign Ministry’s CIS Affairs Department told Kommersant yesterday. “The scheme resembles the one we once applied with Armenia. Guarding borders will suggest mutual financing and mutual border guarding.” According to the diplomat, since neither Abkhaz nor South Ossetian military have any experience of border guarding, Russia will help create such military units in the republics. In case Tskhinvali and Sukhumi some day state that they do not want Russian military to guard their borders any longer, the latter will leave, Mr Kelin promised.
