There was a comment earlier tonight on one of my other posts that was very interesting. It provides an alternate perspective from Russia. Thank You very much for writing Sergey. I hope this finds you doing well.
The most important thing is that most world news agencies didn't report the real beginning of Georgia attack of Osetia. It was in the Osetian's morning, all Osetian and Russian media reported that, but European and American media kept silence. And then only after that when Georgian peacemaker forces (which were part of Osetian-Russian-Georgian joint force) began to attack their Russian colleagues - simply kill them - only after that this (so familiar from Western media) 'Russian tanks enter Osetia' happened.
I personally hope only for peaceful Osetians leaving for Russian camps (in Russian territory!) and get medical help, food and at least some temporary place to live (which wasn't even promised by Saakashvili to them). Not so important the territory as the lifes of people whiсh are in danger from Geaorgian militarists. In Russia, nobody wants to spend resources and somebody's lifes for war, but we can't tolerate killing our citizens.
Once again, Georgian attack on Osetia began at 0:00 GMT+3 (after Saakashvili's words of negotiations!), i heard first news about that at 7:00 GMT+3 and Russian forces entered Osetia to help peacemakers at 15:00 GMT+3. Saakashvili was really sly to begin war on first day of Olympic games, in the night, when Europe began to sleep. Can't understand how UN Security Control didn't even make resolution which would appeal for stop to cease fire.
I hope also that the UN and NATO intercede immediately and puts an end to this, for all parties involved.
