MFA RSO: “The international community should be worried about the future intentions of Georgia”

The Government of South Ossetia cannot confirm any current plans to build any kind of military airbase in our country. However, we would welcome any facility that would protect our people from further Georgian military attacks.

The world need not worry about what is happening in South Ossetia. We are working to build a free and independent country, where our people can live in peace and not be constantly afraid of attack from our neighbors. Rather, the international community should be worried about the future intentions of Georgia, which has attacked our country several times in recent years, including brutally only one year ago.

A mine blast occurred in the area of Georgia adjacent to the borders with South Ossetia. A car carrying a family of Leningor district resident Gocha Gigauri exploded in the mine blast.
