Georgia decried Tuesday Moscow's "creeping annexation" of its territory after Russian border guards moved border markers further into Tbilisi-controlled area, leaving a portion of an international oil pipeline in territory under Russian control.Kereselidze said that Russian border guards had installed last week border markers, which read "State Border of South Ossetia," some 450 metres from Georgia's main east-west highway, leaving a 1.6-kilometre segment of the Baku-Supsa pipeline out of Tbilisi's control.Russian troops have been installing barbed wire around South Ossetia since Tbilisi's defeat in the brief 2008 Russia-Georgia war over control of the Moscow-backed separatist region.
