TBILISI, July 28 (RIA Novosti, Marina Kvaratskhelia) – The detention of Russian military hardware at the Georgian-Armenian border was pure misunderstanding, said Vladimir Kuparadze, the official spokesman for Russian forces in Transcaucasia.
“The senior officer forgot the necessary papers,” he said. “The convoy will continue moving as soon as these papers are delivered.”
Georgian border guards stopped a convoy of Russian military hardware on the Armenian border Thursday.
The state borders department of the Georgian Interior Ministry said the convoy, comprising four trucks and four armored vehicles, was heading from Akhalkalaki (Georgia) to Armenia.
On inspection, Georgian border guards found five PKT machine guns and five signaling pistols and detained the convoy, which lacked the required documents.
