Blame Georgia confirmed the OSCE observers

Observers of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in the Georgian-Ossetian conflict to begin to lean to blame for played out in South Ossetia on the tragedy of the Saakashvili regime.

According to the German magazine Der Spiegel article in the announcement, which will be published in full on Monday at the headquarters of the OSCE accumulate evidence of "numerous wrong decisions of the Georgian leadership, which led to the beginning of the crisis." According to the magazine, "numerous reports of this from the military observers of the OSCE mission in the Caucasus region came through unofficial channels to various government authorities in Berlin", reports RIA "Novosti". According to these data, Georgia is actively preparing for a military attack on South Ossetia and began their attack even before Russian tanks entered (Roki) tunnel connecting Russia and South Ossetia. We also give messages to observers, who claim that the Georgian leadership had ordered the attack on the South Ossetian civilians at night, during sleep, according to the announcement of the article.

Previously, we recall, impartial for Saakashvili and his Western patrons appreciation of what happened given by visiting South Ossetia, Human Rights Commissioner, Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe. From August 24 in Tskhinvali, he described what he saw "the result of the madness of war." "I arrived here (in South Ossetia), to see what happened and how violated rights of the people", - he told reporters on Sunday in Tskhinvali. "What happened here two weeks ago, should not be repeated. It is an insult to humanity. Violation of human rights "- said Hammarberg, quoted by RIA" Novosti ". Commissioner for Human Rights, the Council of Europe also said that after studying the facts of human rights violations, he "will prepare a report which will be published for the whole of Europe knew what happened (in South Ossetia)».

At the same time the OSCE itself is clearly not inclined to lay the blame for the conflict on the Georgian leadership. As he said in an interview with radio station "Echo of Moscow" OSCE media department head Martin Nesirky, he did not "understand", where Der Spiegel took the data contained in the announcement section. According to him, "representatives of the magazine did not seek any comment to me or to someone of my colleagues." Thus, it becomes evident that within the OSCE is brewing conflict over the interpretation of the tragic events in South Ossetia. On the one hand, observers have collected directly from the scene evidence that Georgia was the aggressor was. On the other hand, the "staff officers" of the OSCE this information from the field is ignored.

Nevertheless, Dmitry Medvedev offered the EU to send to the zone of the Georgian-Ossetian conflict over the OSCE observers for "impartial monitoring" the actions of the Georgian authorities, the agency AFP. The President of Russia said British Prime Minister Gordon Brown during a telephone conversation that took place yesterday at the initiative of the British side.

Meanwhile, the Investigative Committee of the Prosecutor General's Office continues to gather evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the Georgian army during the attack on South Ossetia. As reported on Friday, a senior investigator for particularly important cases of the Committee at the Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation Alexander Drymanov, from the testimony of witnesses it shows that the Georgian military intentionally destroyed it Ossetians and aerial photography proves that the shelling of Tskhinvali and its environs strikes purposefully applied to homes and social facilities . "Deliberately firing strikes were conducted in homes of civilians, no strategic targets were not there" - quoted Drymanov RIA "Novosti". "From the testimony of witnesses shows that Georgian troops were deliberately committed acts aimed at the destruction of individuals who are ethnic Ossetians. We have enough evidence about it, "- said the representative of the Prosecutor's Office of the RF IC.
