Medvedev for preserving peace in South Ossetia (28.02.12)
The memories of events in South Ossetia in August 2008 should be preserved, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev declared after watching the film ‘The 8th of August’ on the premises of Glavkino, a large film and TV complex near Moscow.
He met with the participants in the 2008 military peace-making operation and the film crew there. The president believes that conflicts of this kind should never repeat.
“However, if anything like this is imposed on Russia, our response will be just as tough and effective like in August 2008 when Georgia attacked South Ossetia,” Medvedev said.
