Russian Ministry of Defense: Statements about blown up bridges--just another Georgian bluff

Минобороны России: заявления о взорванном мосте - это очередной грузинский информационный блеф

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation denies reports from the Georgians that Russian forces allegedly blew up a railway bridge 45 km from Tbilisi.

ITAR-TASS is reporting that a high-ranking source in the Russian Ministry of Defense stated "statements of a blown up bridge are just another Georgian information bluff. Russian servicemen are bringing peace to Georgia, and not destroying its infrastructure." "The Russian Ministry of Defense does not exclude the possibility that if this really does happen, then we're talking about Georgian provocation," emphasized the source in the ministry.
