Chapter Summary

A majority in Georgia voted against the preservation of the Soviet Union, although in Abkhazia 52,4% voted in favor of the reformed Soviet Union. The South Ossetians and Abkhazians, who are linguistically different from the Georgians and have their own cultures, were afraid that their autonomy would be infringed. The demands of the South Ossetians went back to the period before South Ossetia became part of the Georgian SSR. They wished to unite with North Ossetia. The recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by the Russian Federation was a unilateral act. Therefore, with the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, they were states in the sense of the Montevideo Convention, and according to the four criteria of state building such as territory and recognition.
