According to Markin, based on the testimony of witnesses, the investigation has revealed that the Georgian authorities had taken a number of measures to discredit the Russian Army before Russian troops entered Gori and other villages located on the border with Georgia.
Markin also stated that during the conflict the Georgian authorities changed the uniform of dead Georgian soldiers into civilian clothes in order to create the appearance of large losses among the local population from the actions of the Russian military.
At the same time, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine stated there was no evidence of the participation of Ukrainian mercenaries in the hostilities in South Ossetia in August 2008 with the purpose to discredit Russian military.
"At the present time, the Ukrainian foreign Ministry does not know about the existence of any evidence base to these assertions, which run counter to the constructive spirit of the Ukrainian-Russian strategic partnership", the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry told Interfax, commenting on the statements by Vladimir Markin.
