Vazagov: The decision of the Strasbourg court was predictable

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has issued a decision that it will not consider the claims of residents of the Republic of South Ossetia to Georgia on the events of August 2008.

According to the South Ossetian expert Yuri Vazagov, this decision of the Strasbourg Court was predictable, since the political commitment and bias of the western judicial instances has long been known.

Vazagov drew attention to the activities of another body - The Hague Court, which also repeatedly demonstrated its bias and double standards in its work.

“In fact, the judicial structures, which were presented as international judicial instances that were supposed to decide cases in accordance with the norms of international law objectively, in fact turned into an instrument in the hands of the West.Similarly, now the decision of the Strasbourg court has shown that no one is going to investigate the crimes committed by Georgia on the territory of South Ossetia in August 2008," he stressed.

Vazagov is sure that in the West no one plans to bring to justice those who have committed war crimes in South Ossetia.

“It is more profitable for them to promote in a speculative manner the downed Malaysian Boeing, the topic of Skripale poisoning and other points directed against the Russian Federation. They pursue goals - to achieve some advantages in the confrontation, which is underway today and has become an integral part of the confrontation between Russia and the West, or, more precisely, between the unipolar and multipolar world,” he explained.

According to the expert, there are no prospects for the residents of South Ossetia who suffered during the Georgian aggression, in the international courts.

“It is worth considering another solution to the current situation, or rather, the creation of parallel international judicial structures of the Russian Federation and its allies. These courts should seek and punish those responsible for crimes against humanity and genocide committed on the territory of South Ossetia, Abkhazia, the DPR and the LPR,” said Yuri Vazagov.

The South Ossetian expert has noted that the search should be conducted in the countries where operated regimes supported by the West, regardless of the norms of international law and conventions.
