Human Rights Watch in its report on South Ossetia didn't hold Georgia liable for the August events, states the comment of information and press department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, ITAR TASS reports.


According to the statement, the Ministry read the report, prepared by Human Rights watch, the non-governmental US organization and had to state that the authors of the document, claimed to be aimed to research human rights violations in the conflict in South Ossetia, finally didn't dare to hold Georgia liable for "waged aggression against South Ossetian population and peacemakers in august 2008".

The document is based on a number of "trite and groundless points, intensively discussed in certain foreign and media circles" and explained by the Ministry for several times, the comment states.

Among them are, in particular, the discourses of Russia's responsibility for the actions of South Ossetian groupings, disproportional response to aggressive actions of Tbilisi and so forth.

"The report practically doesn't mention the colossal damage South Ossetia suffered in the result of Georgian aggression", the Ministry pointed out.

Besides, the document includes "nothing new" in comparison of the Western experts' reaction on the events, the Ministry representatives concluded.
