U.S. ‘Dismayed’ over More Russian Troops in Abkhazia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 1 Jun.'08 / 15:13

The U.S. Department of State said it was “dismayed by Russia's Defense Ministry announcement on May 31 that it intends to send more military forces, including railroad construction troops, into the Georgian region of Abkhazia without the consent of the Georgian Government.”

“This announcement is particularly difficult to understand in light of Georgia's forthcoming statement at the UN Security Council on May 30 that it was suspending UAV flights over Abkhazia, as well as the constructive efforts by President Saakashvili and others to invigorate the Abkhazia peace process,” the Department of State said in a statement on May 31.

“We have expressed our concerns to the Russian government and are in touch with the Georgian government about this latest announcement of a Russian military buildup.”
