Georgian leadership involved in South Ossetia crimes (02.03.12)
Moscow has irrefutable evidence that the Georgian leadership was involved in the crimes against humanity that were perpetrated during the armed conflict in South Ossetia in August 2008.
This came in a statement for reporters earlier today by the official spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee, Vladimir Markin.
According to him, Tbilisi officials’ claims that it was the Russian military who committed crimes in South Ossetia are unproven.
This, Markin said, is borne out by statement by interrogated Georgian servicemen, as well as by statements by South Ossetia civilians.
The Georgian troops perfidiously attacked South Ossetia in the early hours of August 8th 2008. Russia retaliated by sending its own troops to South Ossetia and ousted the Georgian army units following five days of fighting.
