These two indepedent de facto nations are Russian puppets, I'm not going to deny that. But they are also indepedent de facto nations, who want indepedence from Georgia. So, I'm for them, even though I know they are Russian puppets. Self-determination FTW.
The problem is, America doesn't, and neither does Georgia. And, now tensions are increasing alongside the border. There could be a war, as Georgia may seek to invade the Russian puppets, and, as a response, Russia will bring its awesome weaponary to defend its Russian Puppets.
It all started when Russia decided to establish formal relations with its Russian Puppets of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The formal relations include that of military relations. It stressed however that the formal relations are not recognizing their indepedence, and it wanted a peaceful resolution to the crisis. Georgia and the United States disagreed.
Russia wanted military cooperation with the Russian puppets because all the citizens of Abkhazia and South Ossetia are also Russian citizens. Russia is pretty paranoid of Georgia, especially with Georgia targeting Russians, so it wanted to protect its Russian citizens.
(American-POV) Georgia accuses Russia of 'full scale military aggression'
(Chinese-POV) Putin issues instructions on relations with Abkhazia, South Ossetia
(Russian-POV) Russia warns Georgia could use force against Abkhazia, S.Ossetia
Yes, I know, this could be overblown. But I'm still worried of a war.
