Moscow's political support for Abkhazia has made relations between NATO and Russia tense. Abkhazia is one of two breakaway territories inside Georgia. NATO and Russia have discussed security situation during a 30 April, 2008, meeting of the NATO-Russia Council. Relations of Russia with Abkhazia have hiked tensions in the region and undermined Georgia's integrity. NATO is also supporting Georgia's territory integrity, and avoids to support any steps that directly or indirectly undermine it. The Russian government has declared its intention to strengthen ties with Abkhazia, and announced plans to send more peacekeeping troops to the two regions.
