Russia keeps Humvees as trophies
- Issue Time
MOSCOW: A top Russian general says Russia has no intention of returning US Humvees that Russian soldiers seized during the brief war with Georgia a year ago.
Deputy chief of the General Staff Anatoly Nogovitsyn says Russia considers the four Humvees to be war trophies and thus has no obligation to give them back.
The US vehicles were seized in western Georgia. They had been used in joint military exercises in which US trainers were preparing Georgian troops for deployment in Iraq.
