The Russians are maintaining their positions in the seaport of Poti. The two illegal checkpoints they established there will continue to operate, allegedly, until humanitarian aid sent by Spain and the United States enters Poti port.
The Russians say they are staying in the city to “keep the peace” and check the cargo being delivered from various countries. However Russian tanks are no longer moving around the streets of the city.
The occupiers have beaten up journalists from the Associated Press news agency. They were in the city to report on the illegal positions still occupied by the aggressors, who responded by breaking their cameras and assaulting them.
