Russia signed on Thursday joint border protection agreements with the former
Russia signed on Thursday joint border protection agreements with the former Georgian republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The agreements were signed in the Kremlin by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Abkhaz President Sergei Bagapsh, and South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity.

Russia recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states after the five-day war with Georgia, which attacked South Ossetia in an attempt to bring it back under central control. Most residents of both Abkhazia and South Ossetia had held Russian citizenship for several years.

In line with the signed agreements, Russia will guard the Abkhaz and South Ossetian borders, including maritime frontiers, until both republics form their own border guard services.

The sides also signed interdepartmental agreements on cooperation between the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), the Abkhaz State Security Service and the South Ossetian Committee of State Security.
