NATO attack on Abkhazia, South Ossetia would mean declaration of war onRussia - envoy to NATO
If NATO uses its ground or naval forces against Abkhazia or South Ossetia, this would mean the declaration of war on Russia, said Russian Permanent Representative at NATO Dmitry Rogozin.
"If NATO suddenly resorts to military actions against Abkhazia and South Ossetia by acting unambiguously on Tbilisi's side, this would mean the declaration of war on Russia. I do not believe in this and think that this is just absurd," Rogozin said in an interview published in the Wednesday issue of the Vremya Novostei newspaper, after he was asked whether there was a possibility of a military conflict involving NATO in the Caucasus.
