Russia saved the people of South Ossetia from extermination during Georgia’s aggression in August 2008. Russia recognized the Republic of South Ossetia, established diplomatic relations, concluded a treaty of friendship and cooperation and is providing assistance in social and economic revival and maintenance of security after the 20 years of permanent aggression of Georgia against South Ossetia. The first working visit of the Russian Federation President Dmitry Medvedev to the Republic of South Ossetia speaks for the fact that Russia will further on develop the friendly relations with our young state, implement joint projects in various sectors to the benefit of the people and to support peace in the Caucasus.

The fact that the President of neighboring Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili had so negative response to the visit of the RF President to the Republic of South Ossetia, with the use of pulp language and insults, is of no surprise, since this is the person who is to be blamed for thousands of deaths of South Ossetians and not prosecuted for his acts and stays in power in Georgia. Certainly, he and his supporters do not need peace and stability on this land.
It not casual that the authorities of Georgia refuse to sign a legally binding document on non-use of force against South Ossetia and keep the peoples under constant tension threatening them with invasion.
Saakashvili voiced these insults while his overseas visit. It is a pity that someone still shakes his hand steeped in blood of Ossetian women and children.
