Russia hands Gori over to Georgian Police and pledges support of the Breakaway Provinces

Russia Today

South Ossetia and Abkhazia have signed the six-point peace plan, drawn up by Russia and France, aimed at bringing stability to the troubled region. Their respective leaders, Eduard Kokoyty and Sergey Bagapsh, agreed to the plan during a meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow.

The Russian President offered his support to the two breakaway republics and went on to criticise the countries which supplied weapons to Georgia.

“We need to establish a final legally-binding agreement on non-use of force that will be signed by sides of the conflicts under guarantees given by Russia, the European Union, OSCE or possibly under some other guarantees,” he said. Link
