Abkhazia refused to sign a cooperation agreement with the Russian Guard

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Abkhazia refused to sign a bilateral cooperation agreement with the Russian National Guard due to protests from the opposition and public organizations. Information about this appeared in the official Telegram channel of the Abkhaz department. Opponents of the agreement believe that Russia wants to interfere in the country’s internal affairs.

The Minister of Internal Affairs of Abkhazia, Robert Kiut, stated that he does not intend to go against the national interests and interests of citizens, so he will not sign the document. He also added that the republic is a sovereign state that cannot allow foreign structures to exercise control over internal security. This threatens the entire state system of Abkhazia, Kiut emphasized.

In addition, the Apsny and Forum of National Unity parties, as well as social activists and human rights activists, opposed the agreement. According to opponents of the document, the rapprochement of the Russian Guard and the Abkhaz Ministry of Internal Affairs will lead to increased control over the activities of the republic’s law enforcement agencies from Moscow.

Earlier, Kiut spoke about establishing interaction with Russian structures of the Russian National Guard to exchange experience and training. However, the minister emphasized that the physical presence of Russian employees is not required for this.
