Presense of Russian Military Protested

The population of the town of Senaki, Samegrelo Region, demonstrated against the Russian army, demanding urgent pullout of Russian troops from Samegrelo Region. The protestors assembled outside the hotel Egrisi. The territory is protected by Georgian policemen, securing the demonstrators.
Despite the assertion of the Russian president that Russian troops would be pulled out from Georgia until today, Russians remain in Samegrelo, plundering the senaki military base. 30 trucks loaded with arms and other military equipment have already went to the Abkhazia conflict zone. They are loading 40 other trucks. In addition, they are mining the aerodrome of the base.
