Mexican TV journalist: Saakashvili started a war in South Ossetia2009-08-31 13:41
Raul Fajardo, a Mexican TV journalist, correspondent of Agave producciones, shot Chronicle of Genocide and Liberation, a documentary exposing genocide against the people of South Ossetia.
In September 2008 he visited war-torn South Ossetian settlements and talked to local residents. Having listened to them, Fajardo made an image of the event.
He believes Saakashvili intentionally assaulted Tskhinval in the day the Olympics in Beijing were opened.
"It created a kind of smoke screen for the events in the region and most people only learned about the Caucasus tragedy several days later, that is, when Russia stepped into the conflict. It involved misinformation and created the misleading impression that Russia was the aggressor", the Mexican said in his interview to RIA Novosti.
The journalist is sure that Russia played a positive role in the conflict. "I am confident that if it had not been for Russia and the courage of the Ossetian soldiers who defended their homeland, mankind would have regretted today the genocide of the Ossetian people, the irretrievable loss of the people with a unique history, traditions and culture," he said.
In his view, actions of the USA and Georgia, were aimed only at financial profit. "I think this underpins the "friendship" between Saakashvili and Bush, the advocates of such militaristic and adventurous policies from which they derived direct benefits. I am convinced that there is no need to prove whether or not direct instructions from Washington were received. The flooding of Georgia with arms, equipment and militaristic speeches is enough to blame the conflict on the United States".
