The first train with military hardware and munitions from the Russian military base deployed in Akhalkalaki has left the district of Tsalka
The first train with military hardware and munitions from the Russian military base deployed in Akhalkalaki, southern Georgia, has left the district of Tsalka, 50 kilometers away from Akhalkalaki, for Russia, an official at the Russian army group in the Caucasus told Itar-Tass on Monday. The Georgian Railways-owned 19-carriage train will bring to Russia seven T-72 tanks, eight reconnaissance vehicles, four infantry combat vehicles, four communication vans and 340 boxes with rockets for GRAD launchers. A group of Georgian military will accompany the train to the Azerbaijani border. Under the agreements reached between Russia and Georgia, the withdrawal of Russian bases from Akhalkalaki should be completed in 2007. This year, 19 trainloads are expected to bring back to Russia all hardware. The departures of other trains are scheduled for May 23, 25 and 30. Part of the hardware and munitions will be redeployed to the Russian base of Gyumri, in Armenia. The first truck convoy will leave for Gyumri on May 18. When all personnel, munitions and material supplies have been pulled out of Akhalkalaki by late 2007, the base will be closed.
