Russia Prepared to Recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia

The upper house of Russia’s parliament, the Federation Council, is ready to recognize independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, Fed Council Speaker Sergei Mironov announced.
''The Federation Council is ready to recognize the independent status of South Ossetia and Abkhazia should the nations of these republics wish so and provided there is a respective resolution of Russia’s president,'' Fed Council Speaker Sergei Mironov said to reporters.
Peaceful life in South Ossetia will be restored for ever, said the speaker, who has arrived in North Ossetia. Mironov accompanies the humanitarian cargo prepared by the RF Fed Council.
