Well they mostly pulled out.
On Friday the Russian forces started to withdraw from Georgia to the two disputed areas within Georgia. It seems Russia is well on it’s way to recognizing the breakaway provinces of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as sovereign states.
Russian convoys were spotted leaving the main city of Gori, the birthplace of Stalin.
The people who came back to Gori came back only to see rubble and destruction where their homes once stood. The Georgian government is preparing for an influx of refugees into the region following the withdrawal of the Russian military.
Russian troops criticized for not exactly living up to United States military standards with sloppy air strikes, antiquated tanks, and at times even drunken soldiers showed that despite all of that they completed their objective quickly. We were reminded what pure aggressive invasion can look like. It was a throwback to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, some of the tanks were even the same.
