There are a huge amount of conflicting reports about what exactly Russian troops are doing in Georgia. AP is reporting that “Troops waved at journalists and one soldier jokingly shouted to a photographer: “Come with us, beauty, we’re going to Tbilisi!”
Georgian and Russian officials appear to be denying it is a move towards Tbilisi. At last report, Russian troops were 12 miles from the capital.
If the EU is sending in
troops peacekeepers, then it would want to do so soon.
