Medvedev Speaks of his Trip to Tskhinvali
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 14 Jul.'09 / 15:15

Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, said the Georgian people would some day rule tough verdict to President Saakashvili for attacking South Ossetia last August.

Speaking at a meeting with Russian navy sailors in Sochi after visiting breakaway South Ossetia on July 13, Medvedev said that “the new state was created after a boorish aggression by the Georgian regime.”

“Of course full responsibility for what has happened [last August] lies on this regime, but it’s not our business to deal with it,” he continued.

“One day the Georgian people itself will rule a heavy sentence to Saakashvili’s regime and to those who took part in those bloody actions.”

“Our task is to help young state to stand on its feet, to overcome difficulties, simply to survive in difficult conditions, which exist in Caucasus,” Medvedev said. “I can tell you frankly: they live there poorly and in difficult conditions. They were all grateful to Russia for those difficult decisions, which we had to take last August. Part of those people might not be alive now if we have not taken those decisions. They were thanking Russia with tears on their eyes… It strengthens Russia’s reputation in Caucasus and in the world.”

“We have a [military] base there,” he continued. “Decent conditions for the service are created there and this [military base] is a direct signal for them, who can’t settle-down and for them in whose minds idiotic plans emerge time after time.”
