Budennovsk and Tskhinval: common past
The bloody August 2008 in South Ossetia did not leave Russians untouched. People in the southern regions of the country especially took the tragic events to heart. Dozens of thousands of people from Tskhinval and nearby villages fled there; it was from there that soldiers set out to defend Ossetian people against destruction. Battle-planes flew from Budennovsk to help the peacemakers. One of the pilots, Major Vladimir Yedamenko never returned to his wife and son. An exhibition at the regional studies museum of Praskoveya village of Budennovsky region is dedicated to the war that took his life.
Dance of Doom
Through hearts of Ossetians, Georgians, and Russians war of 2008 went with a devastating vortex. Notions who is friend and who is enemy were confused. And for some conflict parties remain native, disregard anything. Russian, Ossetian, and Georgian blood mixed in veins of Inga Gamkhitashvili. In these terrible days she worried for all her relatives. Only three days before the beginning of combat actions she left from Tbilisi to Moscow, where she lives, studies, and dances in the Kolkhida and the Suliko ensembles. All what happened on August 8th and after that crucial day, reminded her of bellicose dance of mtiuluri, with predefined tragic end.
Ossetians will carry the pain down the ages
It has been two years since Georgian Army brought down its artillery tsunami on the sleeping Tskhinval. Heart wounds have not yet been healed, aching deeply for those who died an early death. In remembrance of them, exhibitions, museums and memorials are opened in South Ossetia, people coming there flowers and candles in hand.
Ossetian lessons for Georgia
Two years seems to be enough to understand who started shelling Tskhinval, preparing the army for forced enslavement of national minorities and using military rhetoric. Nonetheless, most Georgian mass media maintain the official version of the events that president Mikheil Saakashvili fell victim to the provocation and the outcome of the war was “the victory of freedom and independence for Georgia”. Hasn’t the 08/08/08 tragedy been a good lesson to Georgians? GeorgiaTimes and politologist Arno Khidirbegishvili discussed the lessons that the authorities, the opposition and people learned from the newest history.
