Russian General Staff: Georgia preparing terrorist acts against peacekeepers and civilians

Генштаб: Грузия готовит теракты против миротворцев и мирных жителей

Georgia continues to increase its armed forces and is preparing harassing attacks against peacekeepers and civilians. The statement was made by Anatoliy Nogovitsyn, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, during a press conference in Moscow. The general also added that similar reports are "supported by concrete provocative actions by the Georgians."

As IA Regnum reported earlier, during a session of the anti-terrorism committee, head of the Federal Security Services of the Russian Federation Alexander Bortnikov reported that Russia is strengthening its state anti-terror defense organizations, in particular those situated in the southern part of the country, in connection with the recent reports of preparations by Georgian special forces to commit terrorist acts.
