Russia withdraws from some positions in Georgia

Troops pulled back from Gori, in central Georgia, and vacated the town of Igoeti, the closest they’d come to Tbilisi, the Georgian capital. But Russian forces maintained checkpoints on either side of Gori and in western Georgia were busy erecting a makeshift base in Chkhorotsku, 30 miles north of the town of Senaki. They continued to hold two positions outside Poti, Georgia's main Black Sea port.
