In result of the investigation of the events of August 2008 Russian Investigative Committee has found evidences of the crimes of the Georgian troops in South Ossetia. It was reported by the official representative of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Vladimir Markin.


As reported by the today, the official representative of the Investigative Committee (IC) of Russia, Vladimir Markin, told that his department has got incontrovertible evidence of crimes committed by the Georgian authorities during the war in South Ossetia in 2008. The IC of the Russian Federation intends to bring the Georgian authorities to justice through international organizations.

The department suspects the main political and military leadership of Georgia in the use of banned means and methods of warfare, genocide, attacks on individuals or institutions that enjoy international protection. In the course of a criminal investigation of the events in South Ossetia in August 2008, the IC has received incontrovertible evidence of these crimes, reported.

However, according to the, Vladimir Markin stated that due to the immunity of the State officials from foreign criminal jurisdiction, the Georgian authorities cannot be brought to justice in Russia. Therefore, the IC is going to apply to international organizations.

Vladimir Markin also said that the Georgian side's statements about the crimes of the Russian military during the events of August 2008 do not correspond to reality. According to him, during the interrogation as witnesses, the Georgian military and the civilian population of the republic, including the ethnic Georgians, had not reported illegal actions of Russian soldiers, Polit,ru wrote today.

Recall, Georgia filed a lawsuit at the ECHR against Russia on August 11, 2008. Tbilisi accused Moscow of the illegal invasion of South Ossetia and suspected Russian soldiers of looting. In addition, Georgia also addressed a claim to the International Court of Justice, but in April last year it refused to hear the case, explaining the decision by saying that Tbilisi has not used extra-judicial capacity to resolve the dispute.

In turn, Russia accuses Georgia of genocide and war crimes. However, despite the promises, Moscow has not appealed to the international courts, although it has supported the lawsuits of South Ossetian residents to the Georgian authorities.
