"To save them we need an immediate dialogue with Russia. We surely must familiarize international organizations with this. And I, as an ordinary Georgian, personally appeal to them to prevent the destruction of Georgian villages ... I hope that the Russians won't allow such cruelty. Otherwise it would be a tragedy, the responsibility for which would partly lay on Tbilisi ... Even at the cost of his own resignation Saakashvili must prevent the destruction of these villages. If he would have loved his country, he would have acted this way", Shevardnadze said.
Recall, Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has called on the international community to pay attention to the information, widespread by the media, about the intention of the authorities of South Ossetia to demolish the villages abandoned by the Georgians.
Foreign Ministry called on the co-chairs of the Geneva talks and the international organizations participating in these discussions to urgently discuss the issue with representatives of the Russian Federation to reverse the decision to demolish the houses in ethnic Georgian villages near Tskhinval, as well as the renaming of these settlements.
