It is being reported that Russian forces are pulling back from their ‘buffer zones’ around Ossetia and Abkhazia.
I took some photos in Karaleti on October 1, between Gori and Tskhvinali. This checkpoint appears now to have been dismantled.
It’s a little hard to make out, but you can see the extent of tracks in the tarmac I talked about before. Some journos packing up and leaving too.
