Russian Airborne Troops reinforce peacekeeping contingent in Abkhazian-Georgian conflict zone

Группировка ВДВ усилила миротворческий контингент в зоне грузино-абхазского конфликта

Russian army forces have arrived at a Russian Airborne Troops base in the southern security zone of the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict to prevent a recurrence of what happened to Russian peacekeepers in Tskhinvali and to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe. As Alexander Novitskiy, assistant commanding officer of the Collective Peacekeeping Forces in the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict zone, told journalists, the reinforcements have joined the Russian peacekeepers. According to Novitskiy, the move was made in response to increased provocations by Georgia and the presence of heavy arms in the security zone.
