Finally Russian troops are beginning to leave Georgia and may be adhering to the ceasefire agreement brokered by the French President.
Maybe I’m a little sceptical when it comes to Russian promises and movements, but it is interesting that the withdrawal has finally begun following the arrival of US troops in Georgia (bringing aid). Certainly this conflict had the potential to escalate with Georgia being a close friend of the United States. There were of course US advisers in Georgia providing instruction to Georgian military forces.
I certainly wouldn’t trust the Russian government which is basically controlled by the Russian thug Putin. I am thankful for the arrival of US troops and the aid they are bringing to Georgia, as well as the Australian government’s support of Georgia.
