Russia Backs Georgia Rebel Regions Amid Peace Efforts | Europe | Deutsche Welle | 14.08.2008
Russian President Medvedev met leaders of Georgia's separatist South Ossetia and Abkhazia regions and vowed Moscow would back them in talks on their future status as diplomatic efforts continue.

Eduard Kokoity and Sergei Bagapsh, self-styled presidents of South Ossetia and Abhkazia, held talks with Russian President Dimitry Medvedev at the Kremlin on Thursday, Aug. 14, amid a diplomatic drive to forge peace between Georgia and Russia.
