ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Russia's president has agreed to a proposal calling for both Russian and Georgian troops to move back to their initial positions and stop fighting, but one U.S. Senator says it will take more than a ceasefire to clear up the conflict between the two countries.
Russian peacekeepers have been sent to both South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but Georgia is backing separatists there. U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss was in South Ossetia and Tbilisi just two years ago this month with Senator John McCain and said it was evident then there were signs of a struggle brewing.
"Prime Minister Putin has said he can't have any dialogue with Georgia as long as Saakashvili is President, but you know Georgia is a democracy and he was elected in a very open and democratic election here recently for a second term and it's hard to go against the will of the people of Georgia who've elected this man just because Putin doesn't like him or get along with him because he's challenged Putin," said U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss.
Tuesday Georgian troops were forced out of their last stronghold in the separatist province of Abkhazia. More than 20 years ago a group from south Georgia traveled to Georgia on a relationship building mission.
