Kokoyty imposed responsibility for August war on Europe

2009-03-13 18:51

In August 2008 the European structures didn't take the corresponding measures to prevent war on Caucasus, though Tskhinval repeatedly warned them of the aggression under preparation, stated Eduard Kokoyty, the leader of South Ossetia, at today's meeting with Korien Jonker, the Chairperson of the Committee on Migration, Refugees and Population of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) .


Kokoyty deplores the "tendentiousness of the approach to the events in South Ossetia".

"We repeatedly informed the OSCE and the EU representatives, as well as your colleagues from PACE and ambassadors accredited in Georgia, of Georgia's excessive militarization. Instead of listening to our opinion, our worries, many European countries armed Georgia and drew more of their military specialists to that country. OSCE representatives left South Ossetia a few hours before the outbreak of the aggression. Raising issues of military monitors increase in the conflict area, demanding more authority, they knew pretty well and had the information of the number of troops and military machinery concentrating in immediate vicinity of South Ossetian borders", he said.

"OSCE is the witness of the active construction of the fortifications of the offensive character by the Georgian side. Most distressingly, they didn't anyhow influence the further development of the situation and didn't prevent the tragedy - they stood up in silence and left the conflict area. Undoubtedly, it all causes some mistrust of the South Ossetian people to the OSCE and many other European structures which came to South Ossetia, met the local people and were reported of our worries about the situation", Kokoyty underlined.
