Russian troops leave Senaki town-ministry
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian troops pulled out of the Georgian town of Senaki on Monday after "eliminating" a threat to shell South Ossetia, Interfax news agency reported on Monday, quoting a Russian Defence Ministry statement.
The advance into Senaki, 40 km (25 miles) from a second separatist Georgian enclave, Abkhazia, appeared to open a second front against Georgian forces. But Russian officials have said they have no intention of occupying territory beyond South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
