Pridnestrovien MFA Expresses Condolences to Abkhazian Colleagues on Passing of Abkhaz President Sergey Bagapsh


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PMR sent a message of condolence to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia on the passing of President of the Republic of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh.

 “With keen sorrow was this tragic news accepted in Pridnestrovie”, reads the message of condolence. “Courageous and outstanding politician, Sergey Vasilievich incorporated the best qualities of the Abkhazian people and became for them an example of a devoted service to the society and the country. Coping successfully with attempts of foreign enemies to destroy the Republic, in hard days of trial, he was always distinguished by an ability to find a right solution that would inspire people to fight for their Fatherland.      

The defining moment in life of the Abkhazian state is inseparably connected with the name of Sergey Bagapsh. Under his rule the dream which the Abkhazians had been living with for so many years translated into life – the country got recognition of its state independence. This event had become a natural result of a lasting severe struggle into which Sergey Vasilievich put his whole belief, labour and talents. Firmly, resolutely and consistently defending Abkhazian interests, he would make even his opponents reckon with Republic's position.

 Strong and longsighted leader, he with his deeds brought the process of socio-economic development of a state to a new level, initiated processes which will allow the Republic occupy a rightful place in line of prosperous countries. And during all these years the pledge of success of the state beginnings was that sincere support which Sergey Bagapsh used to receive from the Abkhazian society.

Warm relations of friendship and mutual understanding which have established between Abkhazia and Pridnestrovie are in many ways connected with his personal attitude towards our Republic. His efforts laid solid basis of our fruitful cooperation and played an important role in the creation of an interstate union – Community for Democracy and Peoples' Rights. In Pridnestrovie one will always remember that invaluable contribution which was made by Sergey Vasilievich for the benefit of rapprochement of our Republics.

In this   mournful day, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pridnestrovie fully shares the pain of the people of Abkhazia. We understand the burden of this loss and empathize with the nearest and dearest of Sergey Bagapsh”, states the message of condolence.
