Russia Aims to Keep Control of Georgian Port City


news.yahoo.com

POTI, Georgia - Thousands of Georgians angry at the presence of Russian troops on the outskirts of the strategic Black Sea port of Poti took to the streets Saturday, waving Georgian flags and urging the Russians to leave.

The protest came as a top Russian general said his country's forces would keep patrolling Poti even though it lies outside the areas where Russia claims it has the right to station soldiers in Georgia.

I'll post my own.
How is this not evidence of the fact that Russia wants control of Georgia? They don't seem to be willing at least to put in a puppet government but rather a complete takeover.

There could be several reasons why.
I'm guessing that they are using that port to suppress and control Georgia's economy. They could also very well be setting up bases at the port to fend off intruders. When ships come in they will probably search ships, or anything that comes in. They will seize weapons also vehicles that was supposed to be given to Georgian soldiers.
