SUKHUM, February 16. /TASS/. Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov has confirmed Russia’s liabilities towards Abkhazia assumed after the conclusion of the treaty of alliance and strategic partnership of November 24, 2014.

"The original intention was to provide four billion rubles in financial support for Abkhazia this year. With the signing of the new treaty that support was increased by another five billion. The situation in Russia is a no easy one, but Russia has decided to avoid cutting its support for Abkhazia," Surkov told the media after meeting with Abkhazia’s president and government members.

He said all required funding for the investment programs for Abkhazia’s socio-economic development had been provided. Task number one was now to put them to use effectively enough.

Sukhum on Monday saw two conferences. One reviewed progress in completing the construction of facilities under the investment program for 2014, and the other was devoted to the drafting of an agreement under the new treaty of alliance and strategic partnership within the framework of competences of the Russian Defense Ministry, federal security service FSB, Federal Customs Service and Interior Ministry.
