Utenriksminister Sergej Lavrov sier Russland kan glemme alt snakk om Georgias territorielle integritet. Uttalelsen er et klart brudd på våpenhvileavtalen Russland har underskrevet.

Russia’s foreign minister declared Thursday that the world «can forget about» Georgia’s territorial integrity, and American and Georgian officials said Russia appeared to be targeting military infrastructure — including radars and patrol boats at a Black Sea naval base and oil hub.

At en av statens fremste tjenestemenn kommer med et så åpenlyst provserende statement, er oppsiktsvekkende, spesielt i dagens situasjon.

Lavrovs uttalelse passer til soldatenes: de plyndrer, brenner og fordriver.

Another APTN camera crew saw Russian soldiers and military vehicles parked Thursday inside the Georgian government’s elegant, heavily-gated residence in the western town of Zugdidi. Some of the soldiers wore blue peacekeeping helmets, others wore green camouflage helmets, all were heavily armed. The scene underlined how closely the soldiers Russia calls peacekeepers are allied with its military.
