      Group,

      Actions are "What they are doing is exactly what Stalin did to
      Finland, what they've done to Afghanistan, what in the Second World
      War Germany was doing to Poland and to other European countries,"
      Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said.

      Russian troops are indiscriminately murdering civilians and interning
      them in concentration camps, the embattled Georgian president charged
      yesterday, as he begged the West not to "appease" Moscow as it did
      with Nazi Germany.

      The startling accusations came as Russian troops blatantly violated a
      cease-fire by sending an armored convoy through the strategic city of
      Gori.

      The invaders first poured into Georgia five days ago - ostensibly in
      defense of a pro-Moscow breakaway region, South Ossetia. "What they
      are doing is exactly what Stalin did to Finland, what they've done to
      Afghanistan, what in the Second World War Germany was doing to Poland
      and to other European countries," Georgian President Mikheil
      Saakashvili said.

      Saakashvili, a US-educated lawyer who once practiced law in New York,
      described the situation in Georgia as the rape of his country.

      Russian military forces and their separatist paramilitary allies are
      firmly in control of South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the Black Sea
      coast, the two autonomous regions supporting the Kremlin.

      Russian forces had already seized the city of Gori, effectively
      cutting Georgia in half. Yesterday, an Associated Press reporter saw
      dozens of Russian trucks and armored vehicles leaving Gori and moving
      deeper into Georgia.

      Soldiers waved at journalists and one jokingly shouted, "Come with
      us, beauty, we're going to Tbilisi." The convoy roared southeast,
      toward the Georgian capital, but then turned north and set up camp
      about an hour's drive away from it.



      In Abkhazia, Russian-backed separatists moved into Georgia proper as
      the Georgian army retreated. One of them sneered that the Georgians
      received "American training in running away."

      In response to the outrages, President Bush said he is sending
      Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the Georgian capital of
      Tbilisi "to demonstrate our solidarity with the Georgian people."

      He warned Russia to respect US military-run humanitarian missions to
      Georgia, which include deliveries by C-17 cargo planes and naval
      ships.

      Saakashvili said Russian forces have run amok. "Russian tanks are
      going for villages inhabited by Georgian populations and throwing
      people out of their houses, putting people into concentration camps
      that they are setting up in those villages, and separating men and
      women," he told CBS News.

      "They are taking things like even furniture, toilet seats, killing
      people, terrorizing people."

      He pleaded with the West for help, warning it couldn't repeat
      the "appeasement" of the '30s. "This is a cold-blooded murder of a
      small, free independent country by a ruthless big neighbor."

      Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov mocked Georgia as "a special
      project of the United States." The United States had been training
      the Georgian military, and the nation has been seeking NATO
      membership. With Reuters, AP
