South Ossetia commemorates the victims of Georgia aggression (08.08.12)

The exhibition called "Exhibition of Shot Paintings" has opened at the Theatrical Square in the center of Tskhinvali. The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the outskirts of the city hosted a memorial service to commemorate those who fell victim to Georgian aggressors.

The republic’s president Leonid Tibilobv, the parliament’s members and the members of the government have attended the ceremony commemorating the victims of the war.

On August 8, 2008 at 23:26 local time the capital of South Ossetia got under bombardment and shelling. Georgia violated all arrangements and given promises, and committed a treacherous wide-scale military aggression. An avalanche of rockets and shells fell down from the night sky on the quietly sleeping southern city with a population of about 40,000 people. 

On August 9, the President of the Russian Federation claimed that Russia started a peace enforcement operation to coerce Georgia into peace, and pursuant to the international peacekeeping mandate and its own Constitution came to defend the attacked Russian peacekeepers and peaceful Russian citizens residing in South Ossetia. The troops were assigned to return the Georgian aggressor to the position as of early August 2008 and put an end to annihilation of the peaceful people. Already on Saturday, President Medvedev gave an order to the Russian Military Prosecutor to commence investigation of the act of genocide in South Ossetia.
