New Wave of Ethnic Cleansing


 According to the statement of 16 August 2008 of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation, subdivisions of the Ministry have started withdrawal of ethnic Georgian population from the Tskhinvali region in the direction of Gori.
“We are faced with a new wave of ethnic cleansing of Georgians conducted under military-occupation regime by the Russian Federation, this time through the involvement of Russian state structures. We would like to focus the international community’s attention on the fact that the Russian Authorities have recently been making an increasing number of statements on the necessity of taking into consideration the will of the region’s population. The ethnic cleansing of Georgians seems to be a method by which Moscow expects to attain awaited results,” says ministry of foreign affairs of Georgia.
