Caucasian scientists sceptical about OSCE's resolution on Abkhazia and South Ossetia

The resolution on Abkhazia and South Ossetia suggested by Georgia and adopted by Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe) will not change Russia's policy regarding the recognition of the independence of the two republics, experts believe.

On July 7, the Committee of the PA of the OSCE adopted a resolution calling on Russia to cancel its decision to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The document will have no results for any of the parties, Alexander Skakov, an Orientalist, is sure. According to his story, "the independence of these republics is already a fact; and it should be accounted for."

The resolution is intended more for the internal audience than at a real change in the situation, Mikhail Roschin, another Orientalist, has stated.

"For Europe, it was a chance to show that they are still tuned against Russia in a political sense," he has added, not ruling out that the adoption of the resolution has to do with the latest Georgian-Russian tensions.

The construction of border fortifications on demarcation lines of South Ossetia and Abkhazia with Georgia is painfully perceived by the Georgian society and adds to anti-Russian sentiments therein; this is evident from the recent protests in Tbilisi, the Amnesty International has stated.
