/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Even if West recognizes Kosovo's independence,
Russia will not tacitly recognize independence of Abkhazia and South
Ossetia, independent Russian military expert Pavel Fengelhauer said.

`However, Russia is unpredictable country and no one knows what
decision Kremlin can make,' he noted.

`Diplomats think that Russia should not recognize independence of
Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transdnistira and Nagorno Karabakh. But it's
hard to make a cast ahead. Nevertheless, Russia is not ready either to
help Georgia to resolve conflicts or recognize independence of the
breakaway regions,' he said, 1news.az reports.
