Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 27 Aug.'08 / 11:27

A U.S. Coast Guard cutter, Dallas (WHEC 716), carrying humanitarian aid, docked in Batumi port on August 27.

There had been discussions between the Georgian authorities and the U.S. Navy as to whether to send further ship-borne humanitarian aid to Batumi or Poti. Poti is a major port, but remains under Russian control with Russian troops maintaining an outpost on the outskirts of the town.

Meanwhile, Russian Navy said a cruiser Moskva, flagship of the Russia’s Black Sea fleet, would arrive off the coast of Sokhumi, breakaway Abkhazia’s capital, on August 27, the Russian news agencies reported.
