Where are the Russians supposed to leave

TBILISI, Georgia -- With less than 48 hours before the Oct. 10 deadline for Russian troops to pullout according to the ceasefire agreement, it is unclear if they will leave the Akhalgori district and Kodori Gorge, which Georgia expects them to.

Yesterday, Georgia's Minister for Re-integration Temur Iakobashvili said, "In the villages of Akhalgori the troops are digging in, which indicates an attempts to stay there."

The US is consulting with the European Union about whether Russia has complied fully or not.
