Russian Troops Maintain Checkpoint at Senaki
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 23 Aug.'08 / 14:40

A Russian military convoy, involving armored vehicles and trucks, withdrew from Georgia’s main military base in Senaki on Saturday morning and moved in the direction of breakaway Abkhazia.

Although the troops have pulled out from the town itself, Russian forces have maintained a stationary checkpoint just outside Senaki, controlling a key road intersection at the village of Teklati. The checkpoint controls the road to the port town of Poti and another one to Zugdidi and breakaway Abkhazia.

On August 22, Anatoly Nogovitsin, the deputy chief of the general staff of the Russian armed forces, said at a news conference in Moscow that the military airfield in Senaki would remain under the “zone of responsibility of the Russian peacekeeping forces” – suggesting that Russian troops would not give up control over the area.

Russian troops are also maintaining a checkpoint, supported by armored vehicles, at Nabada, just outside Poti.
