Georgia Detains Russian Military Convoy

Russian military convoy en route from Akhalkalaki military base to
Armenia was detained on July 28 by the Georgian border guard service
at the Armenian border after recovering five machine guns in one of
the armored vehicle, the Georgian Border Guard Department reported.

The convoy, which is currently at the Armenian border, consists of
four trucks and four armored vehicles moving to Armenia as part of
the withdrawal process of the Russian military base from Akhalkalaki.

Officials say that the convoy was stopped because the Russian
officers had no appropriate documents authorizing transportation of
arms.
