Georgia Official: Russian Planes Attack Poti Port

Publication time: 9 August 2008, 11:15

Russian aircraft have attacked the oil port of Poti, as well as an airport and a railway junction, the secretary of Georgia's National Security Council told AFP Saturday.

 

"Over the past two hours, Russian aviation has carried out flights on economic and civilian infrastructure targets. There has been an attack on the port of Poti and on a railway junction and aerodrome in Senaki," Alexander Lomaia said by phone from Tbilisi.

 

Lomaia also said that President Mikheil Saakashvili had been evacuated from the presidential office in Tbilisi to a secure location, and that Saakashvili is preparing to sign a state of emergency.

 

"We have received reports from our defense ministry that five Russian military aircraft have taken off from Russia's North Caucasus region heading for Tbilisi, " Lomaia said.

 

"That's why the decision has been made to immediately evacuate the president's administration and a number of other important government agencies," Lomaia said by phone from Tbilisi.
