RF delays in the withdrawal of its military forces

On 18 August 2008 the Russian occupation forces re-entered the territory of the Senaki military base and started exploding the available infrastructure.

Furthermore, over several days the Russian military forces continue installing landmines on the territories, bridges adjacent to the cities of Gori, Khashuri, Senaki, Poti and Zugdidi.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia declares that by its actions, along with persistent delay in the withdrawal of its forces from Georgia, the Russian side is gravely violating the conditions provided for by the peace accord signed by the presidents of Georgia, France and the Russian Federation, according to which the Russian side should have immediately ceased all military activities in Georgia and withdrawn all of its military units from the Georgian territory.
