The message reads, in part:
“Thirty years ago, the Abkhazian people asserted their right to a free and peaceful life in a hard-fought battle.
Relations between our countries are developing in the spirit of alliance and strategic partnership. I am confident that further strengthening constructive bilateral ties in all areas meets our common interests.
I would like to reaffirm that Russia intends to continue rendering comprehensive assistance to the government and people of Abkhazia in addressing relevant socioeconomic issues and ensuring national security.”
