Pertaining to the 10th anniversary of Georgian military aggression against South Ossetia


Over a long period of time South Ossetia has been the object of the predatory aspirations of the Georgian authorities. Since proclamation of the Georgian independence each new leader considered it his duty to start military actions, ethnic cleansings or genocides against the Ossetian people. Many thousands of the Ossetians were killed and massacred as a result of that. The genocides of the Ossetian people in 1920, 1989-1992, the military invasion in 2004 and, finally, the Georgian-Ossetian war in August 2008, in which the military confrontation culminated, left deep open wounds in hearts of the Ossetian people.
