From the Telegraph: In violation of the peace agreement signed by President Medvedev, over 10,000 Russian troops remain in these two Georgian territories. Their presence is more threatening now that Russia has blocked the extension of neutral UN and OSCE monitors whose mission was to safeguard human rights and observe troop movements . . .
The international community has condemned Russia’s serial violations of the ceasefire agreement. In Moscow last month, President Obama firmly defended our territorial integrity and NATO aspirations. (excerpt from article by Mikheil Saakashvili, President of Georgia), (photo: EPA)
