International recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia is a matter of time - the deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation

The governments of Italy and San Marino should respond to the appeals of South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the recognition of the independence and satisfy them. This was stated by Secretary of the Communist Party Central Committee, the State Duma deputy Kazbek Taysaev.
According to him, the events of August 2008 in South Ossetia gave its people the right to self-determination.
"In the military battles and serious trials the same right also acquired the people of Abkhazia. Having survived in the terrible war, today people have to struggle for the international recognition. This struggle in something is akin to a military operation. Indeed, the United States, which dictates its policy in the Caucasus, is not willing this recognition, to see the peoples of South Ossetia and Abkhazia free and independent, making everything possible not to let the Ossetians and Abkhazians live in peace and tranquility, "- said Taysaev.
The overseas technologists are confronting the nations, living in the fraternity for centuries.
"With suspicious servility the U.S. example is followed by other countries with bourgeois, predatory nature. They do not want to notice South Ossetia and Abkhazia, though it`s impossible not to notice these republics. There are also undecided states which do not know whether to believe the Western media information, or the Russian. Perhaps they forgot that the aggression of 2008 had been fueled from abroad financially and technically. On the ruins of Tskhinval were found the bodies of African Americans - instructors of the inhuman armada of executioners-saakashists, "- stressed Taysaev.
The MP believes that despite all the difficulties, the international recognition of the new states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia is a matter of time.
"We will make joint efforts the two young states to receive the recognition of their sovereignty," - assured the MP.
According to him, the Governments of Italy and San Marino have to respond to requests and satisfy them.
"Historical right to self-determination up to the formation of an independent state cost hundreds of maimed and innocent lives, years of struggle for the rights and freedom. Approximately the same was the fighting of the once unrecognized Soviet Russia for its status in the international community. But the storms and trials only strengthened it, making it the world's engine of science, morality and socialism", - concluded Kazbek Taysaev.
