A convoy of Russian military hardware departed from Akhalkalaki military base headed for the Russian military base located in the Armenian town of Gyumri on August 17, the Georgian Defense Ministry reported.

The military hardware included four Strela-10 surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems, five ZU-23/2 anti-aircraft systems, a BRM-1 armored reconnaissance vehicle, and three BTC-4 middle tank tractors.
