In Ukraine situation another. Medvedev about war with Georgia


Five-day armed conflict in South Ossetia became the first war on the European continent in the 21st century. In the night of August 8, 2008 the Georgian military have entered Tskhinvali of unrecognized South Ossetia, but have been beaten out from him by the Russian army which has entered deep into territories of Georgia and has stopped under Tbilisi. Truce, favorable to Russia, and a distance of the entry of Georgia into NATO became a result of the first war on the European continent in the 21st century which has lasted five days. On the eve of the anniversary of the conflict in Georgia military the doctrine with the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance have begun. Divisions of the American army have marched through all Georgia along administrative border with South Ossetia where troops of the Russian Federation are deployed. On the occasion of a decade of war between Russia and Georgia Dmitry Medvedev who at that time held a post of the Russian president has given an interview to the Kommersant. Корреспондент.net tells details. Saakashvili If not irresponsible, immoral, criminal behavior of Saakashvili is guilty (the president of Georgia 2008-2013 - an edition) and his henchmen, any war wouldn't be. Yes, there during this period there was high degree of tension. She, actually, has arisen not in 2008, and in 1991. Therefore the root of problems, of course, is in what was in the 1990s, in those decisions which I made in... Tbilisi and which haven't been accepted neither in Abkhazia, nor in South Ossetia. Thereof there was a conflict, peacekeepers have been entered. In 2008 the government of Georgia headed by the president has given green light of aggression, and there was what has occurred... It, certainly, was the subjective choice of Saakashvili and his environment. Patrons from the USA... Saakashvili showed all desire something to discuss, to develop (the relations with Russia - an edition), and then was somehow gone... Since the beginning of July, 2008 he has left communication. I then haven't attached it great value, but now is inclined to consider that it there was already a developed line. He, on the one hand, expected that the new head of the Russian Federation will take some other position in relationship with his government and with him personally. In other words, it won't be simple to interfere with those processes which will go there. And on the other hand, I think, by then he has already held full-scale consultations with the patrons - in this case it is first of all about the USA. Independence recognition I certain time thought and have come to a conclusion that it is better than nothing, than to recognize independence of two of these educations (Abkhazia and South Ossetia - an edition), most likely, can't offer. I was guided first of all by to preserve lasting peace on the future... And taking into account that such unbalanced person in mental sense as Mikheil Saakashvili was at the head of Georgia during this period, other option just wasn't... I am sure that other management simply wouldn't make such ugly decision on attack on old men and children, attack on the Russian peacekeepers and, in fact, declaration of war of the Russian Federation. Didn't plan to crush Georgia
