Georgia remained the sticking point for the Kremlin over the long Victory Day weekend, with President Dmitry Medvedev sternly warning about a possible repetition of last year's war.
In his Victory Day address on Red Square on Saturday, Medvedev did not directly mention the five-day war with Georgia last August, but he clearly referred to it more than once.
"Russia's defense is our holy duty. ... Any aggression against our citizens will be rightfully repelled," he said.
