Russian army units are stationed at the entrance to the Sachkhere region, but at least for now, are not hurrying to enter the region. Zurab Tsertsadze, administrator of Sachkhere, told "Interpressnews" of the situation.

"Approximately 20 military vehicles positioned themselves at the entrance to the Sachkhere region at around 17:30. They haven't tried to make contact with us and haven't made any sort of announcement. They are remaining in their positions and no one has gone near them," said Zurab Tsertsadze.

According to Tsertsadze, residents of Sachkhere are again participating in a protest.

Russian forces tried to enter Sachkhere today at 12:00. Policemen and residents jointly sought to begin protests; however, after the half-hour talks, the Russian soldiers pulled back.
