    Russian troops are stepping up preparations to withdraw from Georgian territory outside two separatist regions.

    Georgia’s Interior Ministry says Russian forces were busily preparing Monday to pull back from eight of the checkpoints and posts where they had remained since the August war.

    Russia must withdraw from buffer zones surrounding South Ossetia and Abkhazia under a deal brokered last month by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    Hundreds of EU observers began monitoring Russia’s compliance last week. 

    An Associated Press reporter saw soldiers lowering the Russian flag from above a hillside base at a checkpoint in Kvenatkotsa, near South Ossetia. Soldiers were also destroying nonessential equipment such as sandbags.
