Georgian and Polish Presidents Fired Upon

Leaders from Poland and Georgia accused Russian forces of firing upon a motorcade they were traveling in Sunday.

President Mikhail Saakashvili was on his way to visit victims of the recent conflict between Russia and Georgian forces. The BBC reports that the Russian-Georgia border has seen much cross-fire in the past few weeks, and Saakashvili took the opportunity to shed light on the situation to other European leaders.

Despite Russia and Georgia falling from headlines as of late, Saakashvili made it clear that the region is still unstable and wanted to emphasize Russia's "immoral" and "illegal" presence in the Georgian state.

Russian officials and Russian media denied the incident, claiming none of their soldiers had fired upon the Georgian president's motorcade.
