Imminent Conflict Between Russia & Georgia
05 August 2004 , 10:22531
Russia?s government is likely to resort to military action in response to a Georgia?s threat to attack by fire Russian vessels that "illegally" entered the waters of Abkhazia.
Russian ships frequently take tourists to the separatist region of Abkhazia, as it is the very popular resort for Russian people.
Last Friday Georgian coast militants opened fire on a Turkish ship that entered the Black Sea waters of Abkhazia. Abkhazia's defence chief Vyacheslav Eshba said he would do "everything I can to make sure that the ships arrive safely. If need be, we will use our army for this", ITAR-TASS reported.
