President of the Republic of Abkhazia Aslan Bzhania will pay an official visit to South Ossetia to participate in commemorative events timed to coincide with the 13th anniversary of the events of August 2008….
On the night of August 8, 2008, when the whole world was watching the opening of the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, Georgia began bombing the capital of South Ossetia. Grad installations were operating against the sleeping city, and the Georgian army launched Operation Clean Field. The purpose of this operation was to “destroy” South Ossetia. The Russian peacekeepers’ base was also attacked.
