Two residential houses have ended up beyond the new so-called border that Russian occupants erected in the village of Gugutiantkari, Gori Municipality yesterday though Russian troops have not continued working at the scene yet.
The occupation forces gave three days to the owners of the two houses affected during the 2008 August War to take their harvest from the area. Locals say they will allegedly have to leave their houses forever.

Local resident Givi Gugutishvili says that the new border has ‘invaded’ Georgia-controlled territory by about 100 meters.
The local residents are not aware of the direction the occupants will continue border erection.
Georgian Prime Minsiter Mamuka Bakhtadze said the 'borderization' is 'a painful process,' and full consolidation of international community is required for Georgia to cope with the process.
We should provide the residents of the [occupied] area with assistance, it is most important at the moment,' Mamuka Bakhtadze said today.
Foreign diplomats, ambassadors and employees of embassies as well as Georgian government officials have just arrived in the village to observe the situation.
