"The massive bombing of Tskhinvali was started on August 7th, at 22:45, - he said to the Asaval-Dasavali [Georgian newspaper]. - It was going on for the whole night. At that moment Russian military weren't in Tskhinval", the VZGLYAD.
Previously Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, claimed he started operation because Russian regular forces crossed the border.
Badri Bitsadze noted he himself had seen the bombing, as he had been with his subordinates 100 meters from Georgian artillery. He described the Georgian operation as "chaotic, disorganized, ill-planned".
Bitsadze believes that the court in the Hague should start preliminary investigation, basing on the report of the EU fact-finding commission, which accused Saakashvili in unleashing the war.
