On August 25, 2008, Russia could recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, sources in the Caucasus say.

On August 21, the people of Abkhazia at a national rally appealed to Russia, the Federal Assembly and the State Duma, asking that the independence of their republic be recognized. Earlier, a similar request made by the President of Abkhazia was supported by the Abkhazian parliament.

On August 20, deputies of the South Ossetian parliament made their own appeal to the Russian leadership to recognize the independence of South Ossetia. Earlier, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev stated that Russia supports a resolution to the Abkhazian and South Ossetian conflicts which will support the people of the unrecognized republics.
