The War in August 2008. The eyewitnesses are telling. Khazbi Tskhovrebov

Tskhovrebov Khazbi Dzhenaevich 1943d.b, an inhabitant of Tskhinval

The strong blast was resounded at night from seventh to eighth of August 2008. I have realized at once that it was war. I had never heard such terrible shots. One could not describe the whole nightmare, which we had happened to outlive. My wife and I were at home and having heard the blasts we came down into the cellar. The missile has hit straight there. We survived due to the car, standing nearby. But the next missile has followed. I have been thrown off to the wall by the blasting wave and have injured my leg, have got contusion. The fire was lasting without any intervals. The Georgian fascists were bombing us from all type of weapon, even by aircraft, I thought, it had come the end.
