The War in August 2008. The eye-witnesses are telling. Larisa Kochieva

Kochieva Larisa Vladimirovna, 1975d.b. the citizen of Tskhinval

The seventh of August 2008 has been engraved in the memories not only of each person, who had been found himself in the Republic at that time, but also in those ones, who are not indifferent to the fate of the whole mankind. On the fifth of August 2008 I sent my children to Vladikavkaz, and I, myself, remained in the town. At night from seventh for eighth of August, when the war began, I with my neighbours came down into the cellar, my husband was at the hospital then- he had pneumonia. There were 15 of us in the cellar. There were only women and oldsters there. All were dread from what had been occurring. Georgians were firing us from all types of weapon, including the volley fire system «Hail". The fire had not been falling silent for a second during the whole night.
