A group of Russian troops stationed in South Ossetia have reportedly entered the Georgian territory attempting to construct fortifications.

The Georgian Interior Ministry said in a statement released on Wednesday that the Russian forces deployed a 50-strong unit and an armored personnel carrier on the Georgian side of South Ossetia’s border in the village of Kvemo Nikozi.
