IА REGNUM publishes the full text of the statement of the president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev who signed on August, 26th, the decrees about recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The text was placed on the official site of the president of Russia.

"Dear citizens of Russia!

You, certainly, know about the tragedy of South Ossetia. The night execution-style bombardment of Tskhinval by the Georgian troops brought to ruin hundreds of our peace citizens. The Russian peacemakers, who up to the end had executed their duties on protection of women, children and elderly, were lost.

The Georgian leadership in infringement of the Charter of the United Nations, the obligations under the international agreements, illogically initiated a confrontation which victims peace people became. The same destiny was prepared to Abkhazia. Obviously, in Tbilisi they had counted on a blitzkrieg that would confront the world community with an accomplished fact. The most brutal way had been chosen to achieve the purpose - to annexing South Ossetia through the elimination of a whole people.

It was not the first attempt. In 1991 the president of Georgia Gamsahurdia with the motto "Georgia for Georgians" - just ponder upon these words - ordered to attack Sukhum and Tskhinval. Thousands victims, tens of thousand of refugees, the ruined villages - that was what then it resulted with. Russia during that moment stopped elimination of Abkhazian and Ossetian people. Our country became the intermediary and the peacekeeper, achieving the political settlement. Our country came forward as a mediator and peacekeeper insisting on a political settlement. In doing so we were invariably guided by the recognition of Georgia's territorial integrity.

The Georgian leadership chose another way. Disrupting the negotiating process, ignoring the agreements achieved, committing political and military provocations, attacking the peacekeepers – all these actions grossly violated the regime established in the conflict zones with the support of the United Nations and OSCE.

Russia continually displayed calm and patience. We repeatedly called for returning to the negotiating table and did not deviate from this position of ours even after the unilateral proclamation of Kosovo's independence. However our persistent proposals to the Georgian side to conclude agreements with Abkhazia and South Ossetia on the non-use of force remained unanswered. Regrettably, they were ignored also by NATO and even at the United Nations.

It stands quite clear now: a peaceful resolution of the conflict was not a part of Tbilisi's plan. The Georgian leadership was methodically preparing for war, while the political and material support provided by their foreign guardians only served to reinforce the perception of their own impunity.

Tbilisi made its choice during the night of August 8, 2008. Saakashvili opted for genocide to accomplish his political objectives. By doing so he himself dashed all the hopes for the peaceful coexistence of Ossetians, Abkhazians and Georgians in a single state. The peoples of South Ossetia and Abkhazia have several times spoken out at referendums in favor of independence for their republics. It is our understanding that after what has happened in Tskhinval and what has been planned for Abkhazia they have the right to decide their destiny by themselves.

The Presidents of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, based on the results of the referendums conducted and on the decisions taken by the Parliaments of the two republics, appealed to Russia to recognize the state sovereignty of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. The Federation Council and the State Duma voted in support of those appeals.

A decision needs to be taken based on the situation on the ground. Considering the freely expressed will of the Ossetian and Abkhaz peoples and being guided by the provisions of the UN Charter, the 1970 Declaration on the Principles of International Law Governing Friendly Relations Between States, the CSCE Helsinki Final Act of 1975 and other fundamental international instruments, I signed Decrees on the recognition by the Russian Federation of South Ossetia's and Abkhazia's independence.

Russia calls on other states to follow its example. This is not an easy choice to make, but it represents the only possibility to save human lives
