MOSCOW, August 13 (RIA Novosti) - Russian peacekeepers are removing equipment and weapons from an arms depot discovered near the Georgian town of Gori, close to the border with South Ossetia, a peacekeeping spokesman said on Wednesday.
"We have discovered an undefended Georgian army depot containing a significant amount of military hardware and weapons near the town of Gori. The military hardware is in full working order and combat ready," the spokesman said.
He said the peacekeepers were trying to clear the area close to the conflict zone of weapons and military hardware to guarantee the security and safety of the civilian population. He once again denied that Russian troops are continuing to advance inside Georgia.
"Any claims that Russian troops are advancing inside Georgia are untrue," he said.
