Apparently, the European Court of Human Rights had to make an incredible effort to admit the obvious - that it was the Georgian troops who started the hostilities against South Ossetia in August 2008, and Russia was able to take decisive action to force the aggressor to peace, only after a lapse of days necessary for the urgent transfer of forces and means, said President of South Ossetia Anatoly Bibilov.

"However, this circumstance, which points to Georgia as an aggressor country, does not at all confuse the authors of the lengthy document published on Thursday on the ECHR website," the head of state said to IA " Res", commenting on the ECHR decision on the interstate complaint "Georgia v. Russia (II) ", the subject of which is the events of August 2008 in South Ossetia and their consequences.

According to the President, it is a completely one-sided, politicized document, "having little in common with true events and facts, dictated by the anti-Russian political course of the collective West, which has not for a moment thought about condemning the Georgian aggression against South Ossetia and the crimes of the Georgian military."

"The ECHR actually did not take into account the report prepared by the Tagliavini commission, writing in its document everything that the Georgian side presented to him. Neither the brutal killings of peaceful Ossetians, nor the half-destroyed Tskhinval, nor the suffering of Ossetian refugees, nor war crimes committed by Georgians, in The ECHR does not fall into the field of vision. Only Georgia, only the Georgian position, "Bibilov stressed.

By putting the aggressor in the role of a victim, he continued, the ECHR succeeded in accomplishing the impossible: "apparently, there was also the expectation that after 12 years, few people in the world will be able to recall the long-standing events of August 2008".

“One can only marvel at the cynicism and arrogance of the Georgian state propaganda, which manages to impose its own lies on European institutions. the scope of the instructions received, and ultimately - the political attitudes of the European advocates of human rights, "summed up the head of state.

The day before, the Ministry of Justice of Russia indicated that the Strasbourg court found the accusations of Georgia against Russia unfounded. At the same time, the Ministry of Justice does not agree with a number of conclusions of the ECHR, including that the Russian side is responsible for the incidents that took place on the territory of South Ossetia and Abkhazia after August 12, 2008, despite the fact that the direct involvement of Russian servicemen has not been established.
