On September 21, Vice President of the Republic of Abkhazia Vitali Gabnia gave a speech at an official ceremony on the occasion of the handing of military equipment of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation to the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Abkhazia.
Good day, friends. Greetings to you, officers, soldiers and cadets.
The basis for the phased development of every state is security and confidence in the country’s borders, the calm of its citizens. This means that questions of defence and security have a primary importance in the development of the Republic of Abkhazia.
The foundational Treaty on Alliance and Strategic Partnership
The state border between the Republic of Abkhazia and the Republic of Georgia along the river of Ingur is a border that divides the bipolar world that exists today.
Abkhazia is a reliable and consistent ally of the Russian Federation. The people of Abkhazia highly value the support that Russia gives us in the provision of state security and in the implementation of the economic goals of our Republic.
We have a common destiny and common hopes, and we can congratulate each other because of that. Thank you.
