Bakradze on S-300 Deployment in Abkhazia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 12 Aug.'10 / 17:28

Georgian Parliamentary Chairman, Davit Bakradze said that he had no exact information whether S-300 air-defense system had been deployed in Abkhazia before Russia publicly announced about this move on August 11.

The U.S. Department of State said on August 11 that Russia has had S-300 missiles in Abkhazia for the past two years and Russia's August 11 announcement might not be a new development. Department of State spokesman said that Washington was now looking into whether Russians had added new one or not to the system, which was in place for already two years.

“It seems that Americans have more information owing to their technical capabilities. I cannot confirm whether this system has been deployed in Abkhazia until now or not, because the Georgian side has no exact information in this regard, at least, at my level,” Bakradze told Civil.ge on August 12.

“Unfortunately, we do not have exact information about what kind of armament is deployed in Abkhazia and Tskhinvali and that's exactly one of the problems - absence of exact information and this is why Russia does not allow international monitors into those territories,” he said.

Bakradze also said that the deployment of S-300 air-defense system “is a challenge not only for Georgia, but also for the European Union, U.S. and all those countries, who still demand Russia to fulfill its commitments [under the six-point ceasefire agreement].
