The ICRC will hold explanatory discussions with a population of South Ossetia about the threat of unexploded shells

The Mission of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in South Ossetia is planning to hold explanatory discussions with the population of the Republic due to the threat of mines and other explosive shells, left in the territory of South Ossetia since the war in August 2008. This decision was made by the ICRC management after the accident, in the result of which on November 24 a resident of the Ossetian village of Mugut (Znaur district, South Ossetia) had been blown up by a mine, while grazing cattle.
