Shevardnadze, Russia agreed Wednesday to deploy army troops along this country's main railroad and protect it from rebels trying to overthrow him. By evening, there were signs that the Russian army was moving into position as Shevardnadze's forces beat back a rebel assault on Kutaisi, Georgia's second-largest city, and moved to recapture Poti, its main Black Sea port.
