The Federal Security Service (FSB) confirms that a Russian armored vehicle is moving in the direction of the border of Georgia, towards the Zemo Larsi checkpoint. According to the agency, there are no plans to open an additional military checkpoint near Zemo Larsi.
“BTR is actually moving in that direction, but not to open a checkpoint there – we sent the military to pay attention to maintaining order. This is, so to speak, a preventive measure in case the reservists decide to break through the checkpoint and move to Georgia without signing any documents. The checkpoint is working as usual, no additional restrictions have been imposed”, said an employee of the border service of the FSB of Ossetia.
Rumors that Russia might declare martial law and close its borders were actively spreading immediately after the mobilization was announced. Today, Dmitry Peskov said that no decision has been made on this issue yet.
