On the verge of death: the riot policeman's memories of the August 2008 war

Valery Maldzigov, a fighter of the South Ossetian Special Forces Militia, spent only one day in the war, but such days are engraved in the memory of the rest of his life. Valery was then only 18 years old.

On August 7, 2008, Maldzigov, together with his comrades-in- arms, returned to the barracks from the post in Ubiat, where they were on duty to have a snack and a little rest. Skirmishes in Ubiat took place from the first days of August, and the guys had to defend the borders.
