UNITED NATIONS, July 8 (RIA Novosti) - Russia submitted a draft resolution to the UN Security Council on Tuesday on the situation in Georgia, amid escalating tensions in the country's breakaway regions, Russia's envoy to the UN said.

Vitaly Churkin said expert consultations on the draft will take place at 11:00 New York time (15:00 GMT) on Wednesday.

The text expresses Russia's concern over recent explosions in Abkhazia, which local authorities blamed on Georgian security forces, and a last week's shootout between Georgia and South Ossetia.

The draft calls on Georgia and Abkhzia to show restraint, and to sign a non-violence agreement as soon as possible.
