Russia: arms sales to Georgia will draw sanctions

President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the Russian government to introduce economic sanctions against countries supplying weapons to Georgia.

Medvedev's decree says the Cabinet must work out "special economic measures" against foreign countries, organizations and individuals that sell weapons to Georgia, a former Soviet republic.
The text of Medvedev's decree was released Monday by the Kremlin. It didn't elaborate on the specific sanctions Russia might declare.

  1. Good idea! Why at the same time not to spend demilitarisation of Georgia? Events of August 2008 have shown that the weapon in the Georgian hands is not a good idea...
