Putin ratifies joint armed forces agreement with Abkhazia

Russian President Vladimir Putin ratified an armed forces agreement with the Republic of Abkhazia that unites the Russian and Abkhazian militaries. The information was recently published on the official portal for legal information. The agreement establishes the missions, the orders of formation, deployment and use of the joint forces of both countries.

Earlier, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden stated during a telephone conversation with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili that the ratification of the agreement between Russia and Abkhazia could not be approved by the United States because the USA recognizes Georgia’s territorial integrity.

On November 2, the State Duma of the Russian Federation ratified this agreement. The document was signed by the President of the Russian Federation in November 2015.
