General: Russia not to move deeper into Georgia

Russia has no plans to move its troops from Georgia's two breakaway provinces further into Georgian territory, a senior general said Monday. Deputy chief of General Staff Col.-Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn said Russia had no intention of moving deeper into Georgian territory. At the same time he said Russia demanded that Georgian troops near breakaway province of Abkhazia disarm. The Russian warning has drawn Georgian fears that Russia may open a second front in the conflict over Georgia's breakaway province of South Ossetia.
