Radio intercepts confirm Russian troops entered Georgia on August 7

Via RFE/RL:

At a certain point, [David] Bakradze [Georgia parliamentary speaker] said, the provocations became an act of war that Georgia had to respond to, and he offered evidence that he said proves Russian tanks and troops entered Georgian territory on August 7 through the Roki Tunnel, the only road connecting North Ossetia, in the Russian Federation, to South Ossetia.

"At this point, this is still not public, but we have radio interceptions confirming Russian troops entering Georgian territory in the evening of August 7," Bakradze said.
Bakradze called that "the turning point" where the Georgian government had to make the decision to defend its territory and respond.
