Soldiers of Russian Occupation Army of Looters in Georgia seek for protection from their own higher ranked superiors.
Citing abuse and inadequate food, Russian Army Sergeant Dmitri Artyomov has become the second Russian soldier to desert to Georgia since the 2008 Georgia-Russia war, Georgian media reported on July 2.
In a televised interview, Artyomov told journalists that poor living conditions and physical abuse by his superiors had prompted him to abandon his post in the village of Perevi -- a settlement claimed by both Georgia and breakaway South Ossetia -- and to seek asylum in Georgia. "They treated me very badly back at the base. They beat me," Artyomov said.
