From Fox news:
DEVELOPING Story: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announces that Georgia's two separatist regions are unlikely to ever be parts of the country again, saying, "After what happened, it's unlikely Ossetians and Abkhazians will ever be able to live together with Georgia in one state."
Russian troops on Friday allowed some humanitarian supplies into the city of Gori but kept up their blockade of the strategically located city, raising doubts about Russia's intentions in the war-battered country.
A flurry of international diplomacy, meanwhile, was set in motion to clear the way for a Russian withdrawal. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived Friday in Georgia for talks with President Mikhail Saakashvili.
In Washington, President Bush demanded that Russia get out of Georgia, saying the people there have cast their lot with the free world and "we will not cast them aside." He said that "bullying and intimidation are not acceptable ways to conduct foreign policy in the 21st century."
