MOSCOW, March 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Neither Abkhazia, nor South Ossetia, nor Transdniestria has made any request for accession to Russia, Valentina Matviyenko, Chairperson of the Federation Council, upper house of Russian parliament, said on Saturday, March 22.
“We have not received any appeal from them, and it would be inappropriate to discuss this [issue] now,” she told Ren-TV’s Nedelya (Week) programme.
Matviyenko stressed that “one should not try to portray Russia as a state that seeks to grab something.” “This issue [incorporation of new territories] is not on the agenda. Crimea is a special issue. We have simply restored historical justice,” she said.
