"FSB's key message is not the presence of sabotage and reconnaissance groups, but the shelling taking place from the territory of Ukraine and the death of a Russian soldier. Don't forget that tanks officially entered Georgia because Russian peacekeepers had been killed in South Ossetia," he wrote on Facebook.

Kuleba noted that "Putin is acting on a whim. And this is his weakness."
