According to a Kremlin statement, Mr Medvedev told his defence minister and chief of staff that “the goal has been attained”.
“I’ve decided to finish the operation to force the Georgian authorities to peace. The safety of our peacekeeping forces and civilian population has been restored,” he said.
But Mr Medvedev warned that Russia would not tolerate any further Georgian military activity in South Ossetia, saying: “Should centres of resistance or other aggressive attempts arise, you must take the decision to destroy them.”
Even if the fighting is over there are still an estimated 100,000 driven from their homes. The relief efforts will need to continue long after the current conflict ends.
