11026.jpegIn the opinion of Georgian diplomats, location of the SMERCH valley fire systems at the Russian military base in South Ossetia should be viewed as the "continuation of Russia's aggressive policy in respect of Georgia", VZGLYAD reports.


As was stated by Georgian MFA, this step constitutes a danger not only for the Caucasus but for the entire Black Sea region. Russia "asymmetrically" responded to President Mikheil Saakashvili's peaceful initiatives that he has been voicing recently in connection with his obligations not to fight for bringing Abkhazia and South Ossetia back", - the official statement goes.

It has become known one of these days that a rocket artillery division of RF Air Forces has been located in South Ossetia comprising the SMERCH valley fire systems. The information was presented by the security agencies of the South Federal District of RF. Russian SMERCHs will be located near the capital of South Ossetia, Tskhinval.

One of the basic reasons for locating the valley fire systems is "to prevent possible aggression on Georgia's part". The Smerch valley fire system is one of the most powerful in the world with the maximum fire range being about 70-90 kilometers.
