Russia sending more troops into Georgia?

Georgia is claiming that, contrary to claims the Russians were pulling out of Gori, they are sending more troops in and also entering the Black Sea port of Poti. Russia itself is saying they could send more peacekeeping troops into South Ossetia to guard against Georgian attacks (not that it is likely Georgia will be able to mount any attack for some time). Both South Ossetia and Abkhazia support the presence of Russian troops in their "countries".

Meanwhile the US and UK have pulled out of a planned joint naval exercise with Russia and France.
