The War in August 2008. The eye – witnesses are telling. Margarita Bestaeva

Bestaeva Margarita Dmitrievna, 1926 d.b. an inhabitant of Tskhinval.
The terrible war in August 2008г has made us to outlive the tragic days, which will never wiped off our memory. It seems that the citizens of South Ossetia are accustomed to shooting, after all we have been firing by our "neighbours» for 20 years. The only thought about the war make the tears instinctively emerged in my eyes. When that terrible night of 7-8 of August the firing of our republic started, I was at home with my sister. Having heard the first blasts, we have at once understood that it was -war!
We dashed to run into the cellar, we were so frightened, we thought, we would not live till the morning.
