The Russian Federation may annex the Georgian regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia if NATO continues to push for bringing Georgia into the alliance, declared deputy chair of the Russian security council Dmitry Medvedev.
“The idea of joining Russia is still popular in Abkhazia and South Ossetia,” Medvedev, a former Russian president, wrote in an article published early on Wednesday by Argumenty I Fakty newspaper.
“It could quite possibly be implemented if there are good reasons for that,” said Medvedev, who has cast himself as one of Russia’s most hawkish political voices since its forces invaded Ukraine starting in February 2022.
“We will not wait if our concerns become closer to reality,” Medvedev said in the article that marked the 15th anniversary of the independence recognition, referring to a possible annexation, reported Reuters.
