dbo:abstract
  • Abkhazia and South Ossetia are disputed territories in the Caucasus. The central government of Georgia considers the republics under military occupation by Russia. They are partially recognised as independent states by Russia, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Nauru and Syria. Russia's initial recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occurred in the aftermath of the Russo-Georgian War in 2008. Since their declarations of independence, Abkhazia and South Ossetia have been recognised by seven and six UN member states respectively, though Tuvalu withdrew its recognition of both in 2014. The two regions recognise each other, and also have some recognition from other non-UN member states. In May 2018, Syria recognised the independence of both breakaway territories. Georgia severed relations with Syria for recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia on May 29, 2018. It is officially illegal under Georgian law to enter the occupied territories through Russia without permission from Georgia; it is possible to travel through Georgian territory, though as Georgia cannot assure the safety inside the disputed territory it is not recommended by the Georgian government. People have been kidnapped and killed around the de facto border. (en)
