Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (WiredPRNews.com) — According to Georgian officials, the Russian forces have finally withdrawn from two Georgian cities and now the police are ready to retake control in the central state of Gori.
As per the comments of the national chief of security in Georgia, they are steadily stepping in Gori where they will keep control of the roads. He added that this entire process of entering the city as well as taking control of the entire area would take about two hours.
Lomaia commented that more than 800 police officers were about to enter Gori and did not meet any kind of resistance from Russian forces. He also added that Russian soldiers stayed on the border of Gori and were in personnel carriers. On the other side, Eka Sharashidze, the minister of economic development in Georgia said Russian troops have also left the city of Black Sea, Poti.
The troop movement came just a day after Russia and Georgia jointly accepted the European union-brokered plan based upon the motto of peace. The five day fight over breaking away from the region of Georgia in south Ossetia began on August 8. This war has strained relations with the US, as it considers Georgia as one of their closest allies within this region.
President George Bush had staged an event wherein the theme was entirely based upon the relations with Georgia and on the other side accused the other party for violation of cease-fire.
A U.S. army plane carrying humanitarian aid touched down in the city of Tbilisi yesterday. Simultaneously, Condoleezza Rice, U.S secretary of state, flew to France with the purpose of discussing the peace plan with French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
