He mentioned that the policy of double standards isn't finished: "We hear voices, accusing Russia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia in their alleged non-admission of the EU monitors to our territory. The European organizations must draw conclusions, as their inaction favored the unleashing of the aggression," he said.
Eduard Kokoyty expressed hope that salubrious powers will prevail in Europe, and the due assessment to the structures which allowed negligence, will be given. He stated that since 1989 South Ossetia repeatedly heeded the world community to the situation, but they were not heard, and it lead to the events of 2008. "We again claim we're open for equal-righted and constructive dialog with the EU, the OSCE, the UN and other structures", Kokoyty said.
The South Ossetian leader highlighted he couldn't assess the result no of the investigation unambiguously. In his view, the assessment came too late, but he glad the commission members took principle approach to many aspects and finally defined that the President of Georgia is to blame for the August events.
"Mikheil Saakashvili is an international criminal for unleashing aggression and genocide of the Ossetian people", Kokoyty underlined.
"The sooner the world community condemns the actions of this man, the sooner peace will come to Caucasus," he added.
