Russian military technique will not be transported from Georgia by sea, Trend reports quoting General Vladimir Isakov, head of rear services of Military Forces of the Russian Federation and deputy Minister of Defense of the RF.
"Transportation of military technique by sea became unnecessary after conclusion of transit agreement with Azerbaijan", - Isakov said, adding that this simplifies forces withdrawal and reduces expenses.
