The Federation Council - the Russian parliament's upper house - has extended the mandate of a 3,000-strong contingent of the Russian federal forces as part of the collective peacekeeping forces in the zone of the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict until December 31st. This decision was taken by the Federation Council majority of votes on Wednesday - 142 senators.
