Russian military will leave Perevi next week2010-10-15 16:20
Russian military can leave settlement Perevi next week, the Foreign Ministry of Russia reports - Novosti- Gruzia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The Ministry sticks to the view that Perevi is a "disputed territory".
"Russia decided to withdraw its border guards from Perevi settlement, located in the disputed territory - at the border of Java region of South Ossetia and Sachkheri region of Georgia, it can take place next week".
Karasin reminded that Russian border guards had left the settlement once, but had to return.
"Decision was made to move to the territory of South Ossetia and leave Perevi in December 2008. Right after that numerous Georgian special forces stormed in, and president of Georgia called it the greatest victory of Georgian arms. Then our border guards returned. Since then we've been preparing a calm retreat of our border guards. In the nearest time, I can't rule out next week, it will happen," Karasin said.
He warned Georgia of "propagandist sabbat" over this event.
Karasin expressed hope the EUMM would keep Georgian partners within civilized parameters, as it was promised.
The decision on leaving Perevi was voiced at Geneva Talks yesterday. Tbilisi saw it as a great victory, breakthrough, and "a first step to de-occupation," and since this morning have been demanding immediate fulfillment of the promise.
