Russia is demanding the postponement of Nato exercises in Georgia saying they are a “provocation”.

Moscow believes that the planned exercises in May “can only complicate a situation in the region which is not simple to start with”.

A spokesman said the plans were “absurd” in the light of tensions with the breakaway Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia – which Russia has recognised as independent – as well as opposition protests against Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili.

“We will send a letter to Nato calling for them (the exercises) to be postponed, at least for the time being,” he added.

Earlier Nato announced that it would hold exercises in Georgia from May 6 to June 1 to improve co-operation between the alliance and partner countries.

The military alliance said in a statement that the exercises had the “aim of improving interoperability between Nato and partner countries.”
