Abkhazia: EU raises concerns over proposed Russian naval base in Georgia


The European Council has expressed strong concern about Russia’s reported plans to establish a permanent naval base for its Black Sea Fleet in Georgia’s breakaway region of Abkhazia.

The EU says Russia’s military presence in Georgia’s breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia is illegal. It violates Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and the principles of international law and international commitments accepted by Russia, including the 12th August 2008 agreement and its implementing measures of 8th September 2008.

The European Union also reiterated its support to the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognised borders.
