Cooperative Longbow 09/Cooperative Lancer 09 multinational exercise to be conducted from May 6th to June 1st in Georgia, is a provocation which can have negative consequences, stated today Dmitri Medvedev, the president of Russia - RIA Novosti.


"NATO exercise planned in Georgia - no matter how we are persuaded to think opposite -is an overt provocation. Exercise must not be conducted where the war was", said the President at the ceremony of signing agreements on joint efforts in guarding the state border with the leaders of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

"Any actions which can be regarded by Tbilisi as encouragement of the course for remilitarization of the country, meaningless reinforcement of military components, are regarded by us as measures contradicting the six principles of settling conflicts, agreed in the end August 2008", Medvedev said. He warned of the possible negative consequences of the step, and they, according to the President of Russia, will rest on the people who made these decisions.
