Lenta.ru: GRVZ Siege Lifted

Lenta.ru quotes RIAN in a report that the siege of the GRVZ (Group of Russian Troops in Transcaucasia) headquarters building in Tbilisi has been lifted, and that only a few military police are now checking the documents of those who enter and leave the premises.  The building had been ringed by Georgian interior ministry troops and military police since September 27, and the Georgian government had demanded the surrender of Russian GRU (military intelligence) serviceman Lt.-Col. Konstantin Pichugin, who was believed to be hiding inside.

RIAN has an English-language report here.
