Sergei Shukno does not rule out Abkhazia and S.Ossetia's accession into Union State

South Ossetia and Abkhazia might join the Belarus-Russia Union State, Deputy State Secretary of the Union State Sergei Shukhno told reporters in Minsk on March 26.

According to him, the Union State Treaty provides for a possibility to admit new members. Yet, for the Caucasian republics to join the Union State, they need to be recognized by Belarus first.
"So far the Union State has not received official membership applications from the governments of Abkhazia and South Ossetia," Sergei Shukno said.
