Translation from Russian: (Thanks for CYBERianBOL, one of our viewers)

"He says that he's lost, he was just doing what he had been told to do (follow the column of trucks) and didn't know the destination, he doesn't know what was inside of the truck (explosives and Georgian uniform! in fact) and he spent 5 days on the Georgian territory, he is from North Ossetia and he didn't answer on several questions (what's his name, his battalion etc.) They asked him: Do you have a name or a surname? He answered: No. They asked what's his battalion but he said nothing."

A young Russian soldier, said to be 18 years old, reportedly lost his convoy in Russia's buffer zone in Georgia near South Ossetia.

As he continued his way after repairing his truck, he ended up in Georgia-proper and was arrested by Georgian police officers.

Just before Georgia handed him over to OSCE observers, they let him answer questions by the media who had been invited to film his truck with explosives and jamming equipment.

Filmed at Mtskheta police station, Sept. 24, 2008.
