South Ossetia is not a part of Georgia and never will be

The Government of South Ossetia reminds the world that Georgia initiated a brutal aggression against our country, only a year ago, targeting civilian homes, schools, factories, and cultural assets. That tragic war began with asymmetrical terrorist attacks similar to the ones Georgia has launched on our territory in the past few days. Such behavior was abhorrent a year ago, and remains so now. Accordingly, South Ossetia welcomes today’s commitment of the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation to defend South Ossetian citizens against further Georgian treachery.
