Ossetians leave Georgia

2008-11-10 15:27

South Ossetia continues welcoming refugees from Georgia that have to leave their homes because of their refusal to go to the Georgian army and make war with their native people.

As refugees from Lagodekhsky district of Kakhetinsky region of Georgia report they got through to South Ossetia by forest sideways because Georgian armed units refuse to let them through the border.


1/3/5/35.jpegThese people consider the intention to avoid a call-up to the Georgian army the main reason of their escape. One of them who did not introduce himself because of fear for his elderly parents and other relatives that remain in Georgia reported to GeorgiaTimes site that he had taken his wife and children, two babies and two draft-age boys, to South Ossetia. "How will I let them go to the army that is at war with my people?" - this person said.

And this is what a refugee woman says: due to the fact that Ossetians are forced to go to the Georgian army they have to hide. They sleep out, in the forests or at cemeteries - anywhere. "Georgian people, - she asserts - are hostile to us. Going to a local shop we receive insults, food is not sold to us. That is why we decided to move to South Ossetia, we cannot live like this anymore".

The Ministry of the Interior of South Ossetia accuses Georgia of continuing suppression of Ossetians in their territory. For instance on November 2 according to the information of this authority on the border close to the Ossetian village Mugut there gathered around 15 cars with people that had been ousted by force from the Kakhetinsky region.

Georgia contradicts it. In particular, Kakhetia governor Georgy Gviniashvili stated to the journalists: "This is an absolutely groundless and absurd accusation. The Georgian authorities have never ousted anyone either from Kakhetia or from other regions of Georgia".

However the presence of refugees from Georgia on the South Ossetian land is an undeniable fact as well as the evidence above.

The authorities of the Republic of South Ossetia provided the unhoused people with accommodation and keep supplying them with food. As a source to GeorgiaTimes confirms the Republican Committee for Youth donated electric stoves for cooking, clothes and infant food to the refugees, and the Chairman of the Committee for humanitarian aid distribution Kosta Dzugaev promised to bring them clothes and heaters personally that day.
