    Russia to sign deal with South Ossetia on military base
    RIA Novosti

    MOSCOW, March 9 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday instructed the Defense Ministry to hold talks with South Ossetia on signing an agreement on a Russian military base in the former Georgian republic.

    A similar agreement was signed in Moscow on February 17 with Abkhazia, another former Georgian republic.

    The agreement was concluded during Kremlin talks between President Medvedev and his Abkhazian counterpart, Sergei Bagapsh, who arrived in Moscow on his first visit since his reelection as president of the tiny region on the Black Sea.

    According to the agreement, the base will "protect Abkhazia's sovereignty and security, including against international terrorist groups."

    The agreement with Abkhazia was signed for a period of 49 years with the option of its extension by 15-year periods, despite fierce criticism from Tbilisi and Western nations.

    Moscow recognized the independence of the two former Georgian republics in August 2008 after a five-day war to repel an assault by U.S. ally Georgia on South Ossetia.

    Georgia has fiercely criticized the plans for the bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which it considers part of its territory.

    Russia's military buildup in the region since the armed conflict has also been condemned by the West as running counter to international law and contravening the internationally brokered ceasefire agreement signed by Russia and Georgia in the wake of their August 2008 conflict.

    However, Medvedev said after signing an agreement on the military base with Abkhazia that the deal and a host of other agreements signed in the Kremlin were in line with Russia's international commitments.

    Russia, S.Ossetia sign agreement on military base

    RIA Novosti

    MOSCOW, April 7 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and South Ossetia have signed an agreement on establishing a permanent Russian military base in the former Georgian republic, Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said on Wednesday.

    The agreement was signed between Serdyukov and his South Ossetian counterpart Yury Tanayev who is on a working visit to Moscow.

    "From now on, the status of our military base is changing. With the signing of this agreement, Russia assumes full responsibility for the protection of South Ossetia," Serdyukov said.

    The agreement is for a 49-year term and can automatically be extended at 15-year intervals, Serdyukov said.

    A similar agreement was signed in Moscow on February 17 with Abkhazia, another former Georgian republic.

    Russia recognized the independence of the former Georgian republics in August 2008 after repelling Georgia's assault on South Ossetia in a five-day war. Only Nicaragua, Venezuela and the tiny Pacific island state of Nauru have followed suit.

    The Russian defense minister said the situation along the South Ossetia border with Georgia remained tense and the threat of the use of force by Georgia persisted.

    The military bases are expected to be accommodated in Gudauta, Abkhazia, and in South Ossetia's capital Tskhinvali. Each base is likely to host up to 1,700 servicemen, T-62 tanks, light armored vehicles, S-300 air defense systems and various aircraft.

    Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed on Monday a law on ratifying treaties with the former Georgian republics on joint border protection. Under the deals, South Ossetia and Abkhazia delegate Russia the authority to secure their borders with Georgia.

    Georgia has fiercely criticized the plans for the bases in its former republics, which it considers part of its territory.

    Russia's military buildup in the region has also been condemned by the West for defying international law and contravening the internationally brokered ceasefire agreement signed by Russia and Georgia in the wake of their August 2008 conflict.

    Just read this in the news:
    http://rt.com/politics/241929-russia-ossetia-treaty-alliance/

    At the very least this is exactly what should be done about Novorussia dammit! It is almost certain the war will flare up again, the novorussians need every possible assistance to liberate ALL Donetsk and Lugansk and preferably extent to achieve a road link to Crimea, and then should be offered same deal as South Ossetia. And same should go for Transnistria too.

    F**ck what the US and their NATO puppets say, to hell with them. If the US wants war, they will never win it, the pieces of shit should realize that they will end up as green glass no matter what. Russia will not win it, but THEY could never win it either.

    Hard words that still make me uneasy to speak out, i certainly do not want a world nuclear war in my life time, and i'm sure the russian president and government have their policy and certainly i'm not in the position to tell the russian people what to do  but in the face of US imperialism there must be drawn a read line, and they should be made fully aware of what they will be facing from countries like Russia. Russia is not Lybia or Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria. It has never been conquered, and the US pieces of shit should be made aware the russians will never let themselves conquered no matter what. I hope this is how they feel too.

    Over 3,500 Russian Soldiers Hold Mountain Drills in South Ossetia

    Motorized rifle, tank, artillery, and reconnaissance units practiced completing combat tasks in mountainous conditions.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – More than 3,500 Russian military personnel held exercises in the mountainous terrain of the former Georgian republic of South Ossetia, the Russian Defense Ministry’s Southern Military District’s press service said Friday.

    “Controlled tactical and tactical-specialized training was held at a Russian base in mountainous terrain with motorized rifle, tank, artillery, and reconnaissance units, whose main goal was a spot check on the units’ capability to successfully complete combat tasks in the difficult conditions of a mountainous area,” the press service said.

    More than 3,500 servicemen and approximately 800 pieces of hardware and equipment were involved in the training exercises.

    Earlier this month, head of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov said that Russia was expanding the potential of its military bases in South Ossetia, Abkhazia, as well as in Armenia and Central Asia to help maintain stability in the respective regions.

    In March, over 2,000 Russian air defense personnel staged large-scale exercises in the south of the country, as well as at Russian military bases in South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Armenia.

    South Ossetia declared independence from Georgia in 1991, while Abkhazia followed suit the following year. Both republics were recognized by Russia in August 2008 following an armed conflict in the region.

    In October 2008, Tbilisi adopted a law declaring South Ossetia and Abkhazia to be occupied territories of Georgia.

    Putin submits Russia-South Ossetia alliance treaty to parliament for ratification

    MOSCOW, May 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted a treaty on alliance and integration between Russia and South Ossetia to the national parliament for ratification on Wednesday.

    The document was posted on the website of the State Duma, the lower house of Russia’s parliament.

    President Putin and his South Ossetian counterpart Leonid Tibilov signed a Treaty on Alliance and Integration in the Kremlin on March 18. The document was signed after talks between the heads of both states.

    The Treaty envisages joint defense and security, free movement across the Russian-South Ossetian border, customs integration, cooperation between law-enforcement agencies, simplified procedures for obtaining Russian citizenship and social aspects, including pension payments.

    Russia will ensure defense and security of South Ossetia and protect the country’s borders, according to the treaty. The treaty envisages forming a common defense and security space between Russia and South Ossetia, as well as free border crossing between Russia and South Ossetia, taking into account restrictions in place for security concerns.

    The document stipulates that Moscow and Tskhinval will conduct a coordinated foreign policy.

    The explanatory note says that "the agreement is a core document that confirms the intention of the sides to establish closer cooperation in social, economic and humanitarian spheres, as well as in defense and security step by step." "The document is fully in the interests of the Russian Federation. It is meant to serve as a basis for making separate agreements in the listed spheres," the note clarifies.

    The signed treaty has an expiration period of 25 years and is subject to extension for 10 more years.
