Russian MP Andrei Klimov responded to the decision of the Committee on Political Affairs and Security of OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, which adopted the resolution prepared by Georgia. He said that this resolution might be the attempt to continue the conflict, which arose in Tbilisi.
As Deputy Chair of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs, Andrei Klimov said in an interview with Russian media, “Russia as a sovereign state can recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia”. As he noted, this is their right, which comes directly from the United Nations Charter.
