European Union nations put renewed pressure on Russia on Saturday to live up to its word to withdraw its forces from Georgia under a cease-fire plan. French President Nicolas Sarkozy will lead an EU diplomatic mission to the Kremlin on Monday to meet with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev about the crisis. In Moscow, Medvedev gave no signal that he would compromise, and said the war with Georgia had shown the world that "Russia is a nation to be reckoned with." The leaders will focus on ironing out disagreements over how far back Russian forces should be withdrawn from Georgian territory, as well as the issue of deploying observers.
