Moscow has denied allegations that Russian troops opened fire near a convoy carrying the Georgian and Polish presidents at the South Ossetian border. Tbilisi says machine-gun fire was heard as the cars of Mikhail Saakashvili and his guest Lech Kaczynski approached the checkpoint. Russia has called these claims a provocation.
Suuuuure you decide to take the President of Poland out for a drive late at night to the border of South O. You just happen to stop and get out in the middle of no where with some TV cameras you happened to bring and start filming. Then suddenly a shot is fired, no one runs, then you claimed to have been shot at by Russians.
