Russia rejects ceasefire

Russia has rejected Georgia’s ceasefire offer, which Georgian President Mikhei Saakashvili signed earlier. A Kremlin spokesman told Reuters that Russia will not even consider the agreement given that Georgia has not ceased military operations in South Ossetia.

Saakashvili signed the ceasefire agreement in the presence of visiting French and Finnish foreign ministers, Bernard Kouchner and Alexander Stubb. The ministers representing EU and OSCE presidency will take the document to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev today.
