MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Moscow dismisses Georgian media reports on a buildup of Russian military presence in Abkhazia’s Gal district, Maria Zakharova, the official spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
"The above said reports in the Georgian mass media (on the allegedly ongoing buildup of Russian military presence in the southeastern district of Abkhazia - TASS), which have been picked up by certain officials, are little more than sheer concoctions," she said. "Their authors didn’t bother to produce at least a minimum of credibility."
"It is easy to suppose this is linked to a forthcoming ratification of an agreement on the united group of forces of the Russian Federation and the Armed Forces of the Republic of Abkhazia," Zakharova said.
"If this is so, the one should recall the document reflects strategic partnership between the two sovereign nations that does not pose a threat to the interests of neighboring countries," she said.
"The fanning of groundless insinuations in Georgia shows the opponents of normalization of Russian-Georgian relations are active out in the field," Zakharova said.
