Sukhum. February 25, 2022. Apsnypress. President of the Republic of Abkhazia Aslan Bzhaniya met with Chargé d'Affaires of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Abkhazia Maxim Litvinov, according to the website of the President of the Republic of Abkhazia.

Opening the meeting, Aslan Bzhaniya said that the republic is closely following the events taking place on the territory of Ukraine.

“We certainly support the decision taken by the leadership of the Russian Federation, we are clearly aware that these decisions are hard-won, deeply thought out and have no alternatives. The fact that the foreign policy of the leadership of Russia is always guided by the principles of peace-loving, good neighborliness has never been in doubt. But, unfortunately, it remained unheeded,” the head of state noted.

Maxim Litvinov expressed gratitude to the authorities of Abkhazia for supporting the efforts to accommodate and receive refugees from Donetsk and Lugansk, and also spoke about the reasons for the decisions taken by the Russian leadership in recent days.

He stressed that "in addition to the need to protect Russia from NATO approaching our borders, one of the main motives is to save the population of Donbas from the suffering that has been going on for 8 years."

Maxim Litvinov noted that "all this time, Western countries and Kyiv stubbornly denied the facts of indiscriminate use of force against the civilian population of the region by the armed forces of Ukraine and the so-called national battalions."

“So they sought to distort the real picture of what is happening in Donbas, recognizing as true only those facts that Kyiv broadcasts. The West, in fact, supports these war crimes,” the diplomat said.

According to him, “it reminds us of the situation with the War of Abkhazia, which is denied or hushed up by Western politicians even after 30 years. It is also because of this hypocrisy that the Abkhaz people today suffer from partial international isolation, and fighting is going on in Ukraine.”

Chargé d’Affaires of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Abkhazia noted that “as long as the West, led by the United States, considers that one people is exceptional and treats others with disdain, as long as the empire of lies it created will dominate over the UN and other international forums designed to promote peace and stability, we will be threatened by more and more conflicts like those in Abkhazia, South Ossetia, the Donbas and the former Yugoslavia.”

President Aslan Bzhaniya noted that “we understand everything and hope that the declared goals of the Russian Federation will be achieved with minimal losses. We continue to be ready to support the citizens of the DPR and LPR in terms of the humanitarian, etc. Unfortunately, this story is familiar to us, and we feel it very deeply.”

During the meeting, Maxim Litvinov handed over to the President of Abkhazia a folder with collected testimonies about the suffering of the inhabitants of Donbas since 2014.
