Officers of headquarters of Group of Russian Arms in Caucasus think that Georgia may demand retirement of the commander of Russian 12th base in Adjaria, Viacheslav Borisov, who carried on the army exercises without coordinating with the Defence Ministry of Georgia.

The head of the press office of the group Aleksander Lutskevich told Prime-News, the headquarters is aware of dissatisfaction of the Georgian side with actions of Borisov but there have been no official reaction from the ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia.

According to him the technique and staff of the base are back to the permanent place of stationing. The leader of Adjaria, Aslan Abashidze told by the Adjarian television, the exercises of the 12th base of Russia in Adjaria, which caused the rush in Georgian media, were coordinated with local authorities.
