Statement concerning Russian Federation

On 9 August 2008 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation released another cynical statement, in which it accused the government of Ukraine of facilitating ethnic cleansing in the Tskhinvali region.

It is surprising that the Russian Federation speaks with other states about morality when regular army of Russia carries out full-scale military actions against sovereign Georgia and bombs civilian population with all means available throughout the entire territory of Georgia.

During all these years the Russian Federation intensively armed the criminal regime of Tskhinvali, which held hostage population residing in the conflict zone. The militarization of the region served only one purpose: to conduct full-scale open aggression against Georgia under the cover of peacekeeping operation.

What Russia does currently in Georgia represents a logical continuation of the traditions of Fascist and Soviet regimes.
