In Georgia, in the Holy Trinity Cathedral, a memorial service for all the killed in the August 2008 war was held by Ilia II, the Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia - GHN.


According to Ilia II, he prayed for all the killed. "Private soldiers are not to blame for anything, they only followed orders, -he said. - Let God send us strength and wisdom do not let such meaningless wars repeat."

On August 8th 2008 Georgia violated the border of South Ossetia and shelled the sleeping Tskhinval from BM-21 Grad. On August 9th Russia had to make a decision on starting peace enforcement operation.
