A year after fighting a war with Georgia, Russia strengthened the combat readiness of its troops in the rebel region of South Ossetia on Tuesday and warned the United States against rearming Georgia.

“Provocations from the Georgian side … are not stopping,” Andrei Nesterenko, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, said in a statement. “In connection with this, we have stepped up the combat readiness of Russian troops and border guards.”

Tension has been rising in South Ossetia ahead of the August 7 anniversary of the war, which began when Georgian forces launched an assault on the Moscow-backed rebel enclave.
