Today, another conflict in Georgia arose, after a cease-fire agreement between Georgians and Russians. Both sides were supposed to withdraw troops, but Russia didn't follow through with the agreement and a Georgian police officer was shot near a Russian checkpoint. This incident will most likely raise tensions between Russia and Georgia since their five-day-war, which was begun after Georgians attempted to retake South Ossetia ended in August of this year.
Irina Gagloyeva, a spokeswoman for the Moscow-backed South Ossetian government, said that Wednesday’s shooting was the result of an ongoing conflict between different Georgian agencies vying for control of the area just beyond the Russian checkpoint at Kareleti. She said that the Georgian claim that the police officer was killed by shots fired from the Russian checkpoint was linked to a “desire to discredit the Russian peacekeepers and South Ossetian government.”
