Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 18 Jul.'06 / 17:54

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kaminin said the Georgian Parliament’s July 18 resolution demanding Russian peacekeepers withdrawal from the South Ossetian and Abkhaz conflict zones is “an attempt to stir tensions,” Interfax news agency reported.

Valery Yevnevich, the Deputy Commander of the Russian Land Forces in charge of the peacekeeping operations, said that the pullout of Russian troops from the conflict zones will immediately followed by bloodshed.

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman noted that it is no the first time the Georgian Parliament has passed this kind of resolution.

The Georgian Parliament has passed a total of six resolutions, including the July 18, about the Russian peacekeeping forces in past nine years.

Three out of these six resolutions have been passed in recent nine months (the October 11, 2005 resolution No 1927-II; the February 15, 2006 resolution No 2655-I and  the July 18, 2006 resolution). Three previous resolutions are passed by the Parliament during the Eduard Shevardnadze’s presidency in 1997, 2001 and 2002 respectively requesting the executive authorities to pull out peacekeepers from the Abkhaz conflict zone.
