Alexander Kelekhsaev: Russia has to act using the American methods

Flash-poll: At the end of May the senate of the USA is going to discuss the draft resolution, which proclaims the territorial wholeness of Georgia; it also contains the appeal to Russia to withdraw its troops to the positions, they have been stationed before August 2008. In the draft resolution the actions of Russia -as a participant of the conflict- are condemned, and South Ossetia and Abkhazia are called the «territories, occupied by Russia". In your opinion, why the American senators have revived this theme?

Alan Pliev, Deputy Foreign Minister of the RSO:

The position of the senators L.Trem and D.Shakhin is their personal opinion, and I hope, it will not dominate at the Senate of the USA considering the policy of "reset". Neither South Ossetia, nor Abkhazia pretend to another’s territories and want to live with the surrounding countries in peace, without infringing the rights of the neighboring people. But I also hope that they will keep the same position in regard to our countries. What about the above mentioned "Russian troops" we must underline that the population of South Ossetia and Abkhazia appealed to Russia themselves for rendering them military aid and to prevent another aggression for the part of Georgia, they were being undergone since 90-th. The relevant agreements have been signed for this purpose.

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.
