War between Russia and Georgia
orchestrated from USA
09/08/08 "Pravda" -- The US administration urged for an
immediate cease-fire in the conflict between Russia and Georgia
over the unrecognized republic of South Ossetia.
In the meantime, Russian officials believe that it was the USA
that orchestrated the current conflict. The chairman of the
State Duma Committee for Security, Vladimir Vasilyev, believes
that the current conflict is South Ossetia is very reminiscent
to the wars in Iraq and Kosovo.
“The things that were happening in Kosovo, the things that were
happening in Iraq – we are now following the same path. The
further the situation unfolds, the more the world will
understand that Georgia would never be able to do all this
without America. South Ossetian defense officials used to make
statements about imminent aggression from Georgia, but the
latter denied everything, whereas the US Department of State
released no comments on the matter. In essence, they have
prepared the force, which destroys everything in South Ossetia,
attacks civilians and hospitals. They are responsible for this.
The world community will learn about it,” the official said.
In the meantime, it became known that the Georgian troops
conducted volley-fire cleansings of several South Ossetian
settlements, where people’s houses were simply leveled.
“The number of victims with women, children and elderly people
among them, can be counted in hundreds and even thousands,” a
source from South Ossetian government in the capital of
The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, told
reporters that Georgia’s actions in South Ossetia question its
consistency as a state and as a responsible member of the
international community, Interfax reports.
"Civilians, including women, children and elderly people, are
dying in South Ossetia. In addition to that, Georgia conducts
ethnic scouring in South Ossetian villages. The situation in
South Ossetia continues to worsen every hour. Georgia uses
military hardware and heavy arms against people. They shell
residential quarters of Tskhinvali [the capital] and other
settlements. They bomb the humanitarian convoys. The number of
refugees continues to rise – the people try to save their lives,
the lives of their children and relatives. A humanitarian
catastrophe is gathering pace,” Russia’s Foreign Minister said.
The minister added that the Georgian administration ignored the
appeal from the UN General Assembly to observe the Olympic truce
during the Beijing Olympics.
The Georgian administration has found the use to its arms, which
they have been purchasing during the recent several years,”
Lavrov said. “The fact that Georgian peacemakers in the
structure of joint peacemaking forces opened fire on their
Russian comrades from one and the same contingent speaks for
itself, I think,” the minister added.
“Now it is clear to us why Georgia never accepted Russia’s offer
to sign a legally binding document not to use force for the
regulation of the South Ossetian conflict,” Lavrov said. “Not so
long ago, before the military actions in South Ossetia,
Georgia’s President Saakashvili said that there was no point in
such a document because Georgia would not use force against its
people, as he said. It just so happens that it is using it,”
Sergei Lavrov said.
Sergei Lavrov believes that the international community should
stop turning a blind eye on Georgia’s active deals to purchase
“We have repeatedly warned that the international community
should not turn a blind eye on massive purchases of offensive
arms, in which the Georgian administration has been involved
during the recent two years,” Lavrov said.
