MOSCOW, May 31 -- Russia will certainly use its military transport
aviation to pull out troops from Georgia, commander of the 61st army of
Russia's Air Force, Lieutenant-General Viktor Denisov said on Tuesday.

"We used it to withdraw our military bases from Germany, the Czech
Republic and Hungary. Of course, we cannot do without it during the
troops pullout from Georgia," Denisov said.

He pointed out that all the airfields in Transcaucasia will be used
for the withdrawal of Russian bases after coordination with Georgia.
"We'll be using in the first place the airfields to which we fly now,
foremost Gyumri in Armenia," Denisov said.
