BRUSSELS (AFP) — NATO warned Russia Wednesday to stop taking action to undermine Georgia's territorial integrity, after Moscow announced it would send more peacekeepers to two rebel Georgian regions.
Russia's move, to counter what it said was the massing of Georgian troops near Abkhazia and South Ossetia, raised concern in the United States while the European Union has said that any military build-up would not be wise.

let's see, the US sides with Georgia, along with Britain, France etc. Iran, seeing an opportunity to further their own needs and ambitions, sides with Russia. China follows suit. Syrian/Iranian backed terror group launches attackes on Israel, figuring Iran and Syria being in bed with Russia and China will be enough backing to keep Israel from doing anything to them.
Israel attacks the terror group and Syria or Iran. The fun then begins.
Nato has warned Russia that its recent troop build-up in Georgia's two breakaway regions undermines its neighbour's territorial integrity.
Russia's moves in Abkhazia and South Ossetia were raising tensions in the area, a Nato spokesman said.
Moscow has accused Georgia of preparing to invade Abkhazia, and says it is also boosting Russian peacekeeping forces there and in South Ossetia.
Tbilisi has described the Russian move as "irresponsible".
"The steps that have been taken [by Russia] and the rhetoric have increased tensions and undermined Georgia's territorial integrity," Nato spokesman James Appathurai said.
He also urged both Moscow and Tbilisi to avoid harsh rhetoric.
