Georgia will continue fighting Russia not only in courts but in the informational space as well. According to Malashkhia, a 15-movies series about the occupation of Georgia will be broadcasted by such popular channels as Discovery and History. Russia will be compared to the Nazi Germany and totalitarian USSR, while Putin and Medvedev will be compared to Hitler and Stalin. Georgia has spent 200 thousand laris (about 112 thousand US dollars) on the series, which will fully pay for itself should Malashkhia and his commission demand from Russia the damage compensation for supporting the separatists. As GeorgiaTimes reported earlier, Tbilisi has stated that Moscow is to pay about 40 billiard dollars, although there is hardly anyone to believe the claims will be



In August 2008, Georgia turned to International Criminal Court (ICC) and UN International Court, having accused Moscow of ethnic cleansing in 1993-2008. Besides, about 400 complaints were received by European Human Rights Court from the citizens of Georgia. The documents were drawn up with the help of non-governmental human organizations. The lawsuits mainly concern the death of the people because of the air raid of the Russian planes, illegal detention, property destruction, persecutions and discrimination on the national basis.

One of the complaints was made by the widow of the Georgian serviceman Georgiy Antsukhelidze. His evidence as a war prisoner is available in the materials of the RF Investigative Committee of the Prosecutor's Office; a video record was disseminated in the Internet showing Antsukhelidze, who was recognized by his family, being humiliated and beaten allegedly by the Russian and Ossetian servicemen.

On their part, the Shouth-Ossetian victims accuse Georgia of the genocide. In autumn 2008, 3300 complaints were filed with Strasbourg Court. However, all of them were hastily drawn-up so the court decided to consider 7 of them. This spring, 5 of the complaints were dismissed. It turned out that the relevant South-Ossetian attorneys do not know English well enough and have no means to conduct the process.

It has become known one of these days that the claims will be promoted in Strasbourg by an organization called "Citizens of South Ossetia against genocide" that has been dealing with the similar complaints in the Hague Court for almost one year and a half. Leader of the organization Zhanna Zaseeva who is combining the de-facto authorities of Advisor to President Eduard Kokoity informed that the organization will be engaged in coordinating the work of the attorneys on the claims filed with Strasbourg Court and will provide the assistance of its own lawyers both from South Ossetia and abroad in case of necessity, Radio Freedom reports.
