Being a perfect example of Solomon’s diplomacy, the report presented by the International Commission for Instigation of the August 2008 events in the Caucasus has caused another wave of tension.

Is it really possible to bring to account the high-ranking officials who gave orders in the hot August 2008? The GeorgiaTimes correspondent tried to clear up the matter.
