The War in August, 2008. The eyewitnesses are telling. Olga Siukaeva

Siukaeva Olga Aleksandrovna, 1969 d.b., an inhabitant of Tskhinval

I live on Heroes Street; this is one of the main streets of Tskhinval where the fights between the Georgian soldiers and the local boys have been taking place during the August war of 2008. On the night of August 8, about 12 o’clock the war has started. Terrible explosions have been resounded; one could not describe all horror which I have suffered that moment. Fear has seized me; I lost my head and instantly fell down on the floor. I was with my elderly mother at home. I have crawled to her room; it was terrible even to lift a head. My poor mother was sitting in the corner, trembling with fear. We have hardly gone down into the cellar, becoming weak in the knees.

The Euro Parliament resolution (EP) with the requirement to withdraw the Russian troops from South Ossetia and Abkhazia and stop issuing the Russian passports to the citizens of these republics- is the result of ignorance or, probably, conscious ignoring of the existing realities. It has been declared the IA "Res» by the vice-speaker of the Parliament of South Ossetia Yuri Dzitstsoity, making comments on the resolution concerning the relations of the European Union and Russia, adopted on June, 9. «It`s high time for the Euro Parliament to realize that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are the recognized states, and not any Russian army have ever been on the territory of Georgia. As to South Ossetia, the Russian military base and the Russian frontier guards are stationed in our territory in full accordance with the international law, in particular, in accordance with the agreement on mutual aid and cooperation which has been signed between South Ossetia and Russia. This fact has the legal basis and any appeals are more likely of declarative nature», - the vice-speaker has declared. Dzitstsoity is convinced that the similar formulations in the resolution of the ЕP have appeared by the efforts of Georgia.
