A border post between Russia and Georgia reopens for traffic and trade on Monday after four years, in a development welcomed by locals.
But the move is hardly a sign of improving relations between the two neighbours. The border post - in the Kazbegi region of Georgia - was shut after tensions between Russia and Georgia escalated in 2006, a situation that eventually led to a five-day war in 2008.
Businesses hope the reopening will bring a much-needed economic boost to the region, but Georgian officials are adamant that there will be no thaw in relations with Moscow.
